Francois-Xavier Roth will be conducting the London Philharmonic Chorus, Crouch End Festival Chorus and BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus at the Royal Albert Hall, in a performance of Berlioz's mighty "Grande Messe Des Morts".
With around 500 singers and musicians all on stage together, this promises to be a powerful performance.
Francois-Xavier Roth was the Principal Conductor of the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg, and Chief Conductor of the Cologne Opera, before winning the role of Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra.
The BBC Symphony Orchestra works closely with the BBC and is the principal orchestra during their world-famous Proms Concerts season at the Royal Albert Hall. They also play regular concerts at the Barbican.
The BBC Symphony Chorus is one of the country’s finest amateur choruses. It is closely associated with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and makes frequent radio and TV appearances. It focuses mostly on 20th-century and contemporary music.
