Halifax Choral Society, which next year begins celebrations for its bicentennial, moves into its busiest time of the year with two big performances at the Victoria Theatre in the coming weeks.
First is Handel’s Messiah on Sunday, November 27 (6.30pm) followed by Carols and Brass with Black Dyke Band on Thursday, December 1 (7.30pm) - this year there will be just one Carols and Brass Concert and not two as in previous years.
Handel created his Messiah in 1741 - a magnificent English-language oratorio which has become one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.
This will be the 198th year the Choral Society has performed the piece and the choir is hoping to attract new audience members who may never have heard it before.
We have three pairs of tickets to see the Choral Society perform The Messiah. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning a pair is answer this question.
