Youth Messiah

Royal Albert Hall
On Sunday 1 December 2013 at the Royal Albert Hall, 1200 young people from 42 schools and youth choirs will come together with the English Festival Orchestra and soloists, Daisy Brown, Rosemary Clifford, Oliver Johnston and Gareth Brynmor John, all under the direction of Suzi Digby OBE, to perform Handel's Messiah. The concert is an extension of the annual Messiah from Scratch which has been at the Royal Albert Hall each Christmas since 1974, and both are promoted by Scratch Concerts Limited. Sunday's Scratch Youth Messiah aims to encourage young people to perform Handel's Messiah in its full SATB version. Choirs can choose to sing as few as three choruses or as many as eleven, depending on their level of experience. In fact over half the choirs have chosen to learn everything. Mentors from the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and the London Youth Choirs will be on hand to provide vocal support to encourage the least experience singers. The events starts at 2.15pm on 1 December at the Royal Albert Hall.

  1. This should be fantastic, and I envy those involved. Suzi is such a dynamic instigator of youth choral singing, so it will not only be enjoyable for those who take part, but will also be a joy to listen to.
