Concert: Handel - Messiah
Worcester Festival Choral Society’s annual performance of Handel’s glittering oratorio Messiah has become renowned as the region’s ultimate pre-Christmas concert.
For more than 280 years, Messiah has held a unique place in the affections of music lovers across the world. Its compelling arias and many magnificent choruses – not least the ‘Hallelujah’ chorus and ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’ – are among the most popular pieces of classical music ever written.
Featuring the 150 voices of Worcester Festival Choral Society, the Meridian Sinfonia baroque orchestra and internationally acclaimed soloists (Philippa Hyde – soprano, Sarah Denbee - mezzo soprano, Tom Robson – tenor, Edward Grint - bass baritone) this major concert promises a memorable evening of glorious choral music in the majestic setting of Worcester Cathedral. Samuel Hudson, Worcester Cathedral’s director of music, conducts.

Tickets £15 - £27. Concessions on some seats apply to people 60 or over, registered disabled and full-time students. Children aged 9-15 years accompanying a paying adult admitted free (child ticket required).
