A Choral Christmas: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), CBSO Chorus, CBSO Youth Chorus, CBSO Children's Chorus
Carols are the heart of every Christmas – and the CBSO’s annual carol concerts at Symphony Hall are the most splendid in Birmingham. Featuring the full City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, our massed choirs and performers from across the whole city, they’re like a luxury hamper – overflowing with good cheer, magical sounds, and seasonal music old and new, all beautifully wrapped and delivered with a smile by a celebrity guest host and our world-famous chorus director Simon Halsey CBE.
Treat the whole family: and get ready to join in and sing along, too!
*CBSO Chorus, CBSO Youth Chorus (all performances), CBSO Children's Chorus (Tues & Wed only), CBSO SO Vocal (Thurs only)
Founded in 1920, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has always had an illustrious career. In fact, the first concert was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar. The orchestra has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation.
City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) tour dates
The CBSO Chorus is one of the world’s great choirs – 180 people from all walks of life who come together to sing symphonic choral music. Trained for over 30 years by Simon Halsey CBE, its main role is to perform with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on tour and at its home, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. But it’s also an ensemble with a global reputation in its own right, a hard-working team of “amateur professionals” who give up their own time to perform the most challenging works in the choral repertoire to the highest international standard.
