Handel With Care


The London Concert Choir is one of the capital's leading amateur choirs. Consisting of around a hundred and-fifty friendly members, this accomplished group was founded in 1960, and is currently under the musical direction of Mark Forkgen. The London Concert Choir perform at a number of venues, and for the debut of their 2014/15 season, they will be at Cadogan Hall. On the 6th November from 7.30pm, you can see them perform Handel's Judas Maccabaeus, which after Messiah, is the composer's most popular Pieces. The oratorio is about a second century BCE warrior called Judas, who led a successful campaign against Hellenist invaders trying to replace Judaism with Pagan religion. Tickets to the concert are between £12 - £30.

There are four more concerts scheduled follow, with family Christmas carols on the 29th November with Advent carols by candlelight in the evening, which will be held at St Martin-in-the-Fields. On the 17th December there will be carol singing by both the choir and audience at St. Sepulchre's Church.

After a few months break, they will perform on the 10th March with Mendelssohn's Elijah at the Barbican Hall, before returning to Cadogan Hall on the 11th July for Will Todd's Mass in Blue.
