The Choir of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle

Monday 3 December, 7.30pm

From the dramatic and impassioned opening processional, Laudes Regiae, to the emotionally charged Bogoróditse Djévo, this beautifully put together programme celebrates Advent and the coming of the Messiah.

The Choir of St George’s Chapel, directed by James Vivian, was founded in 1348 and, with the exception of the Commonwealth period (1649–60), has sung the services continuously since then. They sing regularly in the presence of the Queen and other members of the Royal family, and most notably, sang for the recent Royal weddings of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May 2018, and HRH Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank in October 2018.

Tuesday 4 December, 7.30pm

Heiko Mathias Förster leads an attractive programme of classical favourites to delight music lovers and newcomers of all ages. A highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be the internationally renowned soloist Jennifer Pike joining the orchestra for Vaughan Williams’ sublime The Lark Ascending.

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - A Winter Wonderland

Friday 7 December, 7.30pm

Journey through a musical winter wonderland packed full of well-known orchestral works and themes from seasonal operas and ballets, all conducted by the Welsh maestro Owain Arwel Hughes.
