Sadly this concert is another casualty of the Coronavirus pandemic and will now not take place on 19th April. The City of London Choir looks forward to performing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra again as soon as possible and to the happy day when the Royal Albert Hall re-opens its doors.

With great regret, we have been forced to postpone our performance of Verdi’s great Requiem owing to the Coronavirus pandemic. Originally scheduled for 2nd April 2020, this concert will now take place as soon as we are able to re-schedule at the Barbican.

We are deeply disappointed not to be performing this spring under the baton of Hilary Davan Wetton with soloists Rachel Nicholls soprano, Diana Moore mezzo-soprano, Alexander James Edwards tenor, and the blazing trumpets, thunderous drums and massed ranks of the London Mozart Players. Please join us in looking forward to a tremendous performance just as soon as circumstances permit.
