Announcing our exciting 2023-24 concert season!

17th of July, 2023

The region’s leading large classical choir, Worcester Festival Choral Society, has announced three spectacular concerts at Worcester Cathedral for 2023-24 – and the Box Office is now open! (Monday 17 July)

The 140-strong choir, which has brought the choral greats to Worcester since 1861 and was often conducted by Sir Edward Elgar in its early days, will be performing:

  • Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) (alongside Wagner's beloved orchestral piece, Siegfried Idyll) on Saturday 25 November
  • Handel’s Messiah on Saturday 9 December
  • Beethoven’s Mass in C, plus Mirror of Perfection by award-winning British composer Richard Blackford, on Saturday 16 March 2024

The choir is trained and conducted by Worcester Cathedral’s Director of Music, Samuel Hudson. Each concert will feature internationally acclaimed soloists and the Meridian Sinfonia orchestra, and starts at 7.30pm. 

Ben Cooper, Chairman of Worcester Festival Choral Society, said: “We’re thrilled to have such an exciting programme of music in store. You won’t hear these works performed on this fantastic choral scale or in such majestic surroundings anywhere else in the region, so it’s the perfect evening out. Tickets get snapped up fast, so do take advantage of our early Box Office!”
