Messiah is Handel's most popular work and has become one of the most renowned pieces of English sacred music. The majority of his music was popular during his lifetime and then fell into obscurity, but the Messiah has endured.

It has strong historic associations with Leicestershire. The first parish performance of Messiah was at Church Langton. The Leicester Philharmonic Choir chose the work for their first concert on Christmas Day 1886.

The Philharmonic Choir welcomes back Marylebone Baroque, an orchestra of period instruments, to perform Messiah just as Handel would have heard it.

How would you like to sing with the Leicester Philharmonic Choir ?
Our members are a friendly group and share a love of choral music and its performance, if you do enjoy singing why not come and join us. We rehearse at Wigston College (previously Guthlaxton College), Station Road, Wigston, LE18 2DS between 7pm and 9pm on Monday evenings. Our next season begins on Monday 5 September - hope to see you there!

To find out more about the choir go to our website http://thephil.org.uk or contact Shirley Godber, our Membership Secretary, on memsec@thephil.org.uk
