Messiah: hear from the experts

A special event for the Messiah Reimagined Sing-At-Home Choir, Choral Partners and our supporters

Our annual performance of Messiah is different this year. Laurence Cummings, Musical Director of the London Handel Festival, will lead four star soloists, all past finalists from the Handel Singing Competition, and the London Handel Orchestra in a live performance on 3 December from Handel’s church.

The choruses are being prepared and pre-recorded by 7 choirs, including singers from around the world in a specially-formed Sing-At-Home Choir.

Join Samir Savant, Director of the London Handel Festival, as he invites three renowned Messiah experts to discuss the work, the challenges and joys of performance and it’s relevance in society today.
