Christmas with Bob Chilcott and John Rutter

BBC Singers

An image of Rutter and Chilcott jubilant, with their arms raised in salutation

Kings of Christmas John Rutter and Bob Chilcott join the BBC Singers for a perfect concert for singing-in the festive season.

The celebration of the magic, jubilation, fun and joie de vivre of seasonal music culminates in excerpts from the joyous On Christmas Night by Bob Chilcott, the choir’s very own Principal Guest Conductor. John Rutter is on hand to conduct favourite works including his own Shepherd’s Pipe Carol and there will be Christmas standards for all to enjoy – and join in singing. Sing your way into the spirit of the season.

The performance will finish at approximately 9:30pm. It includes a 20 minute interval.
