Handel’s Messiah

Oval Hall| Sheffield City Hall

Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus joins forces with the world-famous Black Dyke Band, to perform the rarely-performed brass arrangement of Handel’s Messiah in the City Hall on Saturday 23 April 2022.

The Chorus is thrilled to be able to present this brass band version of Handel’s wonderful oratorio Messiah, with visiting choir mebers from Bochum in Germany and Perigueux in France. The Chorus have undertaken tours in both Bochum and Perigueux in recent years, and has strong associations with the choirs in the two cities.

This brass band Messiah collaboration was planned for 2019 but had to be postponed due to the pandemic. However, all three choirs and Black Dyke were determined to go ahead as soon as circumstances changed, and the big event is planned for St George’s Day 2022.

Featuring a superb new brass arrangement of the soprano aria ‘How Beautiful are the Feet’ by Chorus Music Director Darius Battiwalla, and four wonderful soloists, this will be an evening to remember!
