Messiah: Reimagined

Monday 5 April 2021 19:00pm BST (note time-zone)

Join us online for a unique and ground-breaking performance of Handel’s masterpiece, blending ‘live’ and ‘virtual’. Acclaimed baroque conductor, Laurence Cummings will lead our star soloists, all alumni of our international Handel Singing Competition, and the London Handel Orchestra in a live performance from St George’s, Hanover Square in London’s Mayfair – Handel’s own church.

The choruses have been prepared and pre-recorded by fifteen choirs, including our ‘Sing at Home’ chorus, totalling some 500 singers from all over the world, and will be integrated digitally into the overall performance. The whole event will be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube for global audiences to enjoy free, and will be available on the London Handel Festival YouTube channel afterwards, where you can also watch our inaugural performance live-streamed on 3 December 2020.

Please click ‘Book Tickets’ on the right hand side to register for this event.  Anyone registering this way will receive a reminder of how to access the online event in the week leading up to the performance, and will also receive a link to a downloadable programme.
