1984, a name changer

In 1973 Leiden University’s ‘English Department Choir’ first performed a few Christmas carols for an audience; in 1984 the choir’s name changed to the ‘Leiden English Choir’. Fifty years on… what better way could there be for us to celebrate our anniversary than with a truly glorious Christmas concert! As always, we will have a mixture of well-known and less familiar carols, along with sparkling works by Vivaldi, Durante, Vasks, and others. This time the choir and soloists will be joined by the internationally renowned orchestra Florilegium Musicum. And of course there will plenty of opportunity for the audience to join in.

In short, a festive concert not to missed! Save the date and watch the website. Tickets are available via the website and from choir members. Buy your tickets early, as it promises to be a spectacular jubilee concert!
