To celebrate the 200th birthdays of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the Royal Choral Society (the choir named by Queen Victoria herself in 1888) will join the magnificent Coburg Philharmonic Orchestra (from Prince Albert’s home town) in a special performance of some of the royal couple’s favourite music.

Accomplished pianists and excellent singers, Victoria and Albert shared a passion for music. They were particularly keen on Mendelssohn and his music – and this celebratory concert will showcase his works including the beautiful symphony-cantata Lobgesang (Hymn of Praise) and his ‘Reformation’ Symphony. The concert will begin with Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer, and will also include a short work composed by Prince Albert himself.

Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. interval)
