We are pleased to announce that ticket booking has now opened for the 2014 Royal Hospital Chelsea concert series. This year’s series features new faces and return visits from artists who have enjoyed performing in the unique and atmospheric setting of Wren’s Chapel in the Royal Hospital. The full concert series brochure is available to download here.
The Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital perform Mozart’s Requiem Mass in D minor, one of the most compelling of all choral masterpieces, alongside Bach’s stunning Magnificat. The Royal Hospital’s own choir, which is formed from some of London’s finest professional choral singers and musicians, provides the chorus and soloists and William Vann, Director of Music, conducts. Book online here.
We close the series with a concert bringing together local schoolchildren, musicians and prize-winning soloists for performances of Rutters' Mass of the Children and Britten’s Saint Nicolas. This promises to be a delightful evening in the run up to Christmas. Book online here.
The RHC concert series, which continues to showcase the talents of both internationally renowned musicians and gifted young artists, is now in its eleventh year and firmly established in London's musical calendar. We look forward to welcoming you to the remarkable and historical Royal Hospital Chelsea, the Home of the Chelsea Pensioners, for the 2014 Concert Series.
