School choirs wanted to sing the Messiah.
November 27 will see 1500 young singers take part in a unique performance in London’s Royal Albert Hall – the award-winning Scratch Youth Messiah. This is an invitation to experience a stress-free and enjoyable way to introduce young singers (aged 7-25) to the joys of performing the most famous choral work in the world.
Winner of the ‘Best Classical Music Education Initiative’ in the 2015 Music Teacher Awards for Excellence, the Scratch Youth Messiah is now in its fourth successful year. A unique formula allows choirs to sing as much as they can comfortably manage and listen to other young choirs singing the rest, with the support of a professional orchestra and soloists.
The basic requirement is that you sing just four core choruses. After that you can sing as much as you feel to be within your choir’s capabilities. Learn the music in your own time, then join others on the day at the Royal Albert Hall for a morning rehearsal and a thrilling afternoon performance.
Singers pay nothing. There is a registration fee of £30 per choir; tickets for young singers (and essential chaperones) are then free.
The Scratch Youth Messiah is organised by Concerts from Scratch, the team behind The Really Big Chorus, with more than 40 years’ experience of promoting large-scale choral concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, notably our flagship event Messiah from Scratch. You will find yourselves in very safe hands.
