we are recruiting
Following on from our 140th anniversary celebrations last season, this year the kids have their own special birthday - it is now 10 years since Phil Kids was formed and some who joined at the beginning are looking forward to joining the adult choir.
The Phil, led by music director Stephen Doughty, 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!
2015 sees us make our debut at Culture Night. We will bring Classical Cocktails to the public in the courtyard of the Dark Horse.
…"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…"
