Brighton Festival news: Brighton Festival Chorus: Belshazzar’s Feast

Latest update from Brighton Festival:

Fifty years ago a new choir was launched with a performance of Walton’s epic cantata Belshazzar’s Feast, whose choral music is both immensely challenging and unforgettably vivid. That choir was Brighton Festival Chorus, now established as one of the finest symphony choruses in the UK and an indispensable part of the Festival.

Just as in its 1968 debut, the Chorus is joined by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for this historic commemorative concert. Conducted by Sir Richard Armstrong and with the leading British baritone James Rutherford as soloist, this is a landmark performance for the Chorus, and an unmissable event for anyone who thrills to the intensity and excitement of a virtuosic ensemble at full power.
