Christmas is coming and "Messiah" is just around the corner.
Tickets on sale now.
The Belfast Philharmonic Choir (affectionately known as "The Phil") was founded in 1874 which means we have been enhancing life through choral singing for 140 years!
Led by music director Stephen Doughty, the 120+ strong chorus is Northern Ireland's only symphonic choir and performs at least four concerts per year, many alongside the Ulster Orchestra. This includes the traditional performances of Handel's Messiah which we have undertaken each Christmas since 1886!
"Last Friday's performance of The Messiah by the Ulster Orchestra and the Belfast Philharmonic was one of the best I have heard for many years."
