Description

U3A Christmas Concert 2018 with the Brandenburg Singers and Organ.

3rd December 2018 - 2pm

3rd December 2018 - 5:30pm

18th December 2018 - 2pm

Designed to whet your appetite for the coming season, the concert will include traditional carols and refreshments of mulled wine and mince pies.

The concert will be introduced and conducted by Bob Porter, the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London’s Artistic Director.

The Chapel belongs to her Majesty the Queen in her Right as Duke of Lancaster. It is a ‘free’ chapel or ‘peculiar’, not falling within any bishop’s jurisdiction, but remaining within the Church of England. It is the last surviving building of a hospital founded by Henry VII for homeless people in 1512. It is a beautiful, intimate space for concerts with a fine acoustic and splendid Walker organ.

The Brandenburg Singers is a small hand-picked group drawn from the finest of the members of the 150 choirs that perform in the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London.

Seating is unreserved.
