Part of Classical Season 2019/20

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to coronavirus crisis.

Settle in for an evening of glorious song from shows and operas with tenor Jamie MacDougall and the Parliament Choir, accompanied by Southbank Sinfonia.

Hear songs from shows with arias and choruses from popular operas at an event where spirits are lifted along with voices.

The Parliament Choir, led by Music Director Simon Over, was founded in 2000 for those – MPs, Peers and staff – who work in the Palace of Westminster.

The Choir now has more than 120 full members united across traditional party divides by the common love of choral singing.

Southbank Sinfonia is an orchestra of young professionals, now firmly established as Britain’s leading orchestral academy.

It provides the most talented graduate musicians with a much-needed springboard into the profession. Southbank Sinfonia has played for all the Parliament Choir’s major concerts since 2002.
