Online Premiere on Thursday 10 December 2020, 7.30pm GMT

International Choral Scene

"Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without John Rutter and his ever-popular concerts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and this year we’ve pulled out all the stops to bring this firm festive favourite directly to you, in the comfort of your own home." This announcement of "John Rutter -  A Christmas Celebration" on the corresponding website of the event is really promising! 

Shortly before Great Britain went into lockdown again, the artists met for the recording: John Rutter and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra collaborated to create this special online celebration, A Christmas Celebration, which featured a number of special guests, including acclaimed actor Simon Callow and the renowned vocal group VOCES8. The performance, pre-produced in the historic setting of St. Albans Cathedral in London, will be streamed to ticket holders on Thursday, December 10, 2020, 8:30 p.m. (CET) and will remain available "on demand" for a period of time afterwards.

The concert can be followed on a variety of media, so you can enjoy the Rutter Christmas feeling at home to the fullest. To add the musical magic to your home, all you have to do is book your ticket online. Detailed information about the concert and booking of tickets can be found here.
