About This Event

‘Mr Christmas’ himself – John Rutter – joins BBC Singers Principal Guest Conductor Bob Chilcott in a concert of Christmas carols with the BBC Singers and BBC Concert Orchestra.
An absolute must for fans of Christmas carols - Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the carols of John Rutter and Bob Chilcott. In a special concert, the two composers take turns to conduct their own festive repertoire with the BBC Singers and the BBC Concert Orchestra. In a programme packed with seasonal favourites including Star Carol, Jesus Child and The Shepherd's Carol, there will also be the chance for audience participation to kick-start Christmas.
