DESCRIPTION

A stage packed with 330 singers and LSO instrumentalists to get your Christmas off to a rip-roaring start, including traditional audience carols and Christmas songs.

The LSO’s Choral Christmas brings together children in the LSO Discovery Choirs, local singers in the LSO Community Choir, and the 120-voice London Symphony Chorus, accompanied by the LSO’s String Ensemble under the baton of our choral director. Simon Halsey is an inspirational chorus conductor heading up singing at the London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC Proms. His Choral Christmas promises something for everyone.
