The Scratch Youth Messiah

Now in its fifth year, the award-winning Scratch® Youth Messiah returns again to the Royal Albert Hall, showcasing 1,500 young singers from youth choirs all over the country who come together to sing Handel’s Messiah with professional orchestra and soloists. 

Voted ‘Best Classical Music Education Initiative’ in the 2015 Music Teacher Awards for Excellence, this vibrant performance features children as young as six or seven making their contribution to the Hallelujah Chorus as they sit alongside more experienced young singers who perform the complete work.

Ben Parry (artistic director, National Youth Choirs of Great Britain) conducts, with the English Festival Orchestra and young, prize-winning soloists.

This afternoon performance is ideal for families, being slightly shorter than the usual Messiah, yet still including all the best tunes!
