London Symphony Orchestra: A Choral Christmas
with Simon Halsey
Sing along with the LSO’s choirs and Brass Ensemble in our annual Christmas spectacle, featuring audience carols and other festive favourites.
There are certain things that Christmas just wouldn’t be complete without. Mince pies, Santa hats, Christmas jumpers – and of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without coming together with friends and family to sing your favourite carols.
Now in its fourth year, the LSO’s annual Christmas celebration is an essential part of the festive calendar. We assemble over 300 singers from across London, including the London Symphony Chorus, children from the LSO Discovery choirs, and adults from the LSO Community Choir, accompanied by the jubilant sounds of the LSO Brass Ensemble. There’s something special about joining in with the massed voices of 2,000 people in the Barbican Hall – the perfect way to get into the festive spirit.
