Hallelujah Chorus Virtual Choir

For 80 years the MSO has marked the festive season with a performance of Handel’s masterpiece, Messiah, and (with your help) in 2020 the tradition continues!

Following on from the success of our two previous virtual choir projects, and to celebrate eight decades of performing this monumental work, we invite you to join us for a virtual performance of the epic Hallelujah chorus.

You’ll become an honorary member of the MSO Chorus, when you join Chorus Master, Warren Trevelyan-Jones for a special Zoom rehearsal… with a guest appearance from the presenter of our Ears Wide Open series, Nicholas Bochner.
