Following the resounding success of the Messiah Reimagined performances on 3 December 2020 and 5 April 2021, the London Handel Festival is thrilled to present Handel’s masterpiece once again!
At 7pm on Friday 10 December 2021, under the inspirational leadership of musical director Laurence Cummings, Messiah Reimagined will be the opening night concert at the St John’s Smiths Square Christmas Festival. The festival will feature performances from soloists and the London Orchestra, integrated with pre-recorded choruses by partner choirs and a special all-comers ‘Sing At Home’ Chorus, which you can be part of!
To participate, you will be asked to prepare and record three choruses from Messiah – ‘And the glory’, ‘Worthy is the Lamb’ and the ‘Hallelujah!’ chorus. Your recording will be combined with videos from other members to create a professionally produced video, set against the backdrop of Handel’s own church, which will be broadcast live.
The submission deadline is Sunday 19 September.
