THE 200th MESSIAH

The Society invites audience members who have sung the Messiah previously or have good part-singing experience to join with us for some of the great choruses (your own score will be required, Watkins-Shaw edition preferred).  More details will be announced.

Halifax Choral Society gave its first performance of Handel’s incomparable masterpiece The Messiah in 1818. We have given at least one annual performance every year since then.

Its members may be amateurs from many walks of life but they pride themselves on professional singing.

Throughout its long history, the Choir has performed almost every major choral work in the repertoire.

The Halifax Choral Society has always aimed high and has traditionally performed with first-rate orchestras, soloists and conductors.

Looking through the annals of the Society is to turn back the pages of musical history of the past two centuries.
