This year, Covid restrictions may mean that you can't join us in our auditorium, but you can join us online for the annual Christmas performance of Messiah.
The choir will be on stage with a live audience capped at just 1,000 people, and having performed at the Hall every year since 1872, this is one Christmas tradition that you don't have to miss in 2020.
We'll be watching together at 19:30 BST on 17 December as Handel's Messiah is premiered. Join with us as the splendour of this beloved masterpiece fills our auditorium and homes around the world this christmastime.
If you can't watch on 17 December, don't worry, the event will be available to watch on demand until 31 December.
Featuring the sublime voices of the Philharmonia Chorus, accompanied by majestic sounds of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, combined with special guest vocalists Francesca Chiejina, Katie Bray, Trystan Llŷr Griffiths and Dingle Yandell.
