Seasonal celebrations at the Cadogan Hall kick off tomorrow, 1 December 2016 with the first of two concerts by Barts Choir with the Trafalgar  Sinfonia conductor Ivor Setterfield in Charpentier's Messe de Minuit, plus music by RVW, and Finzi. Still in a choral vein, Tenebrae and the English Chamber Orchestra, conductor Nigel Short perform Handel's Messiah with soloists, Grace Davidson, Sarah Connolly, James Gilchrist, and Chrisopher Purves. Maasaki Suzuki conducts the Choir and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment with soloists Anna Dennis, Robin Blaze, Jeremy Budd and Ashley Riches in Bach's Christmas Oratorio spread over two evenings. 

The choir of St John's College, Cambridge, conductor Andrew Nethsingha are bringing a programme which mixes traditional favourites with RVW and Jonathan Harvey, whilst the Sixteen, conductor Harry Christophers, are exploring the Three Kings with music stretching from England to Bohemia.

In a lighter vein, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be presenting its Christmas Cracker, and there is a chance to hear Ralph McTell (celebrating 50 years as a professional musician), and  the Rat Pack at Christmas. Ben Palmer and the Orchestra of St Paul's will be delighting families with The Snowman and We're going on a Bear Hunt.
