Christmas spirit doesn't get better than Carols at the Royal Albert Hall
When the festive season comes round, one of the grand Christmas traditions is the annual live stage spectacular Carols at the Royal Albert Hall. For many Londoners it's the finest carol production to be had, and it's no wonder: this is a grand occasion, with a full symphony orchestra, a military band and a massed choir performing all of our favourite Christmas carols as well as some of the more obscure or forgotten ones. It's a wonderful family show that will really instil the festive spirit in everyone. Make sure to make your bookings long before Christmas comes round, because there's always a big demand. It's so easy when you buy or sell Carols at the Royal Albert Hall tickets on StubHub.
The Royal Philharmonic joins the National Youth Choir
Carols at the Royal Albert Hall are sung by the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, with musical backing provided by no less a group of musicians that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the entire ensemble under the baton of Richard Cooke. The show alternates throughout the evening between crowd participation sing-alongs of the most well known Christmas favourites, and serious classical renditions by the stage performers. The arrangements of the carols range from the traditional to the very modern, and every year the show programme includes newly penned interpretations by some of the UK's most accomplished modern classical music and film score composers. One such is David Arnold, the James Bond movie composer, who created a new arrangement of "Silent Night" for the 2018 production. There's so much to look forward to when you have Carols at the Royal Albert Hall tickets. Remember to get them well ahead of time!
An unforgettable Christmas music extravaganza
Carols at the Royal Albert Hall is a night of family fun, punctuated by moments of reverence that evoke the deeper meaning of the festive season. Additional solemnity is provided by Her Majesty's Coldstream Guards band, and the Royal Choral Society makes a contribution every year as well, bringing their more mature voices to these much-loved songs. The 2018 show was compered by Greg Beardsell, and the narrative seamlessly stitches the musical items together to create a show that is far more than the sum of its parts, far more than just a recital of Christmas carols. It's a festive season extravaganza that will bathe you in the seasonal sentiments of goodwill to all men. It's one of the best ways to spend the run-up to Christmas, joining other traditional festive classical music productions like The Nutcracker and Handel's Messiah.
