Start the new year in time-honoured tradition with the Edinburgh Royal Choral Union for its 134th performance of Messiah on Monday 3 January 2022. We are delighted to be returning to the Usher Hall after our enforced absence since January 2021.

With soloists:

Emma Morwood - Soprano

Alex Chance - Countertenor

Jerome Knox - Baritone

Matthew McKinney - Tenor 


Socially distanced seating will be available in the side stalls.

Please note that to keep audience members and Usher Hall staff safe, picnics will not be permitted at the concert. The bars will be open, however.

There will be an interval but it will be 20 minutes duration this year.
