Debussy Festival 24 Mar F3 A2903.

It’s time to sing! There’s no more glorious sound than a great chorus raising its voice in joyful celebration, and it feels like a lifetime since our world-class CBSO Chorus last sang for you in Symphony Hall. Well, they’re back: reunited for the first time in 17 months, as Simon Halsey conducts a concert spanning four centuries of British music in all its pageantry, poetry and roof-raising splendour. Be there, and feel the thrill.

They will be joined by organist Julian Wilkins who will also give a solo performance of Florence Price’s Air and Toccato from Suite No.1 for Organ. 

Please note that this performance is being filmed and some of the footage will be used in a documentary film about choral singing. If you have any questions about this, please contact the CBSO via Thank you.
