Ernst van Tiel

Conductor

 

13th September 2014

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!

 

…"Throughout the Philharmonic Choir is superb, with their rhythmic attack, precision of diction and varying dynamics …  They excel in crisp marcato and staccato phrases …  How refreshing to hear Handel sung with such variety of tone colour and dynamics…"
