Start the festive season in splendid fashion with the APO’s annual Celebrate Christmas concert.
Led by conductor Johannes Fritzsch, the talents of rising star bass-baritone James Ioelu combine with the rich colours and possibilities of an orchestra to create a very special celebration.
This much-loved event in the APO calendar will include selections from Yuletide orchestral favourites like Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Greensleeves, and excerpts from Handel’s rousing Messiah. And of course, you can’t have Christmas without a healthy selection of carols.
