Messiah – as performed in 1812

This concert brings together 200 performers from the local community to recreate a large-scale performance of Handel’s Messiah, given in Portsmouth in 1812. The University Choir will join forces with the Solent Symphony Orchestra, Portsmouth Cathedral Choir, St Mary’s Church Choir and soloists from the Royal College of Music to raise money for local musical charities while realising a research project led by Dr George Burrows. This is a rare opportunity for university staff, students, alumni and townsfolk to collaborate in raising their voices and some money for good causes, as Messiah did in its time.

Tickets: £17 full price, £15 concessions, £8 under 16s

Box office: 023 9284 3023
