David Hill will be kicking off the Christmas season with an afternoon of festive music performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra, Bach Choir, and soprano Ailish Tynan.

There will be classical pieces by the likes of Bach and Engelbert Humperdinck, plenty of seasonal songs, and even some sing-a-long carols for all (even you!).

First established in 1875, the Bach Choir has long been regarded as one of the world’s leading choruses. The choir’s musical director is currently David Hill, who occupies a spot once held by the great English composer Vaughan Williams.

The Philharmonia Orchestra is based at the Royal Festival Hall. Widely regarded as one of the world’s great orchestras, they have an extraordinary recorded legacy.
