The Royal Choral Society will be marking its 140th anniversary with a special celebratory performance at the Royal Albert Hall of Verdi’s Requiem, alongside the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Richard Cooke.
The Requiem has special significance for the choir as it gave the British premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in 1875, conducted by Verdi himself. Verdi's Requiem is a work of great dramatic power, perfect for the stunning auditorium of the Royal Albert Hall.
The choir is delighted to be celebrating its 140th anniversary singing this awe-inspiring historic work in the concert hall where they first sang in 1872.
You can see a video of the choir rehearsing the work here:
