Christmas with the London Philharmonic Choir

Saturday 16 December 2017, 19:30-21:30
Great Court
£24.00 Members and their guests

Go on a journey through the history of Christmas music, from the grandeur of the Tudor court though to the classic Victorian Christmas, finishing with modern favourites.

Experience the sublime sound of the critically acclaimed London Philharmonic Choir as they serenade you with a feast of festive songs at the British Museum.

Working under conductors such as Pierre Boulez, Mark Elder, Daniele Gatti, Simon Rattle, Georg Solti and Franz Welser-Möst, the Choir has always met with critical acclaim. Widely regarded as one of the nation’s finest choirs, they perform regularly with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and other world-class orchestras at major venues and festivals throughout the year.

Your evening begins in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery where you will enjoy festive treats such as mulled wine and mince pies. You will also have the opportunity to pick up a Christmas present or Gift Membership in the luxury Grenville Room.

£24 for Members and their guests, including a complimentary drink. Members may purchase tickets for up to six guests. Age 16+.
