Concert by the UK Parliament and German Bundestag choirs in Westminster Hall on 31 October 2018
24 August 2018
The UK Parliament and German Bundestag choirs will commemorate the centenary of the Armistice which ended the First World War with a concert in Westminster Hall on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
The concert will feature Mozart's beautiful Mass in C Minor. The two choirs will be accompanied by Southbank Sinfonia and conducted by Simon Over, the Parliament Choir's Founder-Conductor and Southbank Sinfonia's Music Director.
Tickets are now available to purchase, priced at £15, £25, £30 and £35 (plus Eventbrite booking fee).
Westminster Hall is a long room and seats will be in blocks with the higher priced tickets at the front nearer to the performers and the lower priced tickets at the rear of the Hall.
The two choirs first sang together in Westminster Hall in 2014 at the start of the First World War centenary commemorations and again at the Bundestag in 2016.
The choirs have chosen music and readings for their 2018 performance which are intended to be inspiring and uplifting. The concert is aimed at demonstrating the friendship between the UK and Germany and recognising the contribution of the Commonwealth countries to the war.
Admission into Westminster Hall is from 6pm with some pre-concert entertainment provided by members of Southbank Sinfonia from 6.30pm.
A souvenir programme will be provided free of charge, but attendees are invited to make a donation to support the charitable work of the choir which provides bursaries to young musicians.
