Carols are the heart of every Christmas – and the CBSO’s annual carol concerts at Symphony Hall are the most splendid in Birmingham. Featuring the full City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, our massed choirs and performers from across the whole city, they’re like a luxury hamper – overflowing with good cheer, magical sounds, and seasonal music old and new, all beautifully wrapped and delivered with a smile by presenter Ore Oduba (Strictly Come Dancing 2016 champion) and our world-famous chorus director Simon Halsey CBE. Treat the whole family: and get ready to join in and sing along, too!

*CBSO Chorus, CBSO Youth Chorus (all performances), CBSO Children's Chorus (Tues & Wed only), CBSO SO Vocal (Thurs only)

The concert on 19 December has been made possible with generous support from Lord Digby and Lady Patricia Jones of Birmingham
