Choir on song to raise thousands for our work

The annual Messiah performance at The Royal Albert Hall in support of BHF takes place for the 40th year this Sunday 30 November.

Once again the organisers of the world’s most celebrated choral participation event, Concerts from Scratch and The Really Big Chorus, have chosen to donate the proceeds of programme sales from the concert to our fight against heart disease. Over the past 10 years the partnership has raised over £50,000 that has gone towards funding our essential research.

As well as the programme sales, funds will also be raised by auctioning off the chance to conduct the 3000-strong chorus and professional orchestra from the famous podium for the rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus.

Marianne Barton from The Really Big Chorus said: ‘We are once again delighted to be supporting the British Heart Foundation and their fight for every heartbeat’.

Our Director of Fundraising, Louise Parkes adds: “The support and generosity from the event is so vital to the work we do. We want to congratulate Concerts from Scratch and The Really Big Chorus on their 40th anniversary and thank them once again for their continued support.”
