Three fine choirs will be joining forces with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Verdi's powerful and moving "Requiem" -- one of the best loved pieces in the entire choral repertoire.

The choirs are the London Philharmonic Choir, Royal Choral Society and Huddersfield Choral Society, and will be conducted by Brian Wright.

The London Philharmonic is one of the leading independent choirs in the country, working closely with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. With 200+ members ranging from bass, tenor, alto and soprano, the choir has a wide repertoire of choral styles.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) was founded by Thomas Beecham in 1946. Subsequent principal conductors have included the great André Previn and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
