Children’s Messiah 2018

In December 2018 we welcomed more than 750 children and their families to Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall and Glasgow’s City Halls, for our annual Children’s Messiah. Specially crafted for children, these 45-minute concerts give our young listeners a chance to hear some of the best bits of Handel’s Messiah and to experience the thrill of a live orchestra, choir and soloists in performance – often for the very first time.

Generously supported by Baillie Gifford, these concerts also marked the end of our schools workshops programme in Edinburgh and Glasgow, specifically targeted at schools from deprived areas, where access to first-class music-making really does have the power to transform lives.

We are delighted to share some photos of these events with you here.
