Carols by Candlight
Established as one of the highlights of the musical calendar; this is a firm family favourite. Enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie as an appetiser to a feast of seasonal favourites served up by Alwyn Humphreys with Ros Evans, the Chamber Orchestra of Wales Chorale and accompanying musicians.
Messiah, Handel’s seasonal favourite oratorio, features such well loved choruses as For Unto Us a Child is Born and the famous Hallelujah Chorus, is performed this year by Swansea Philharmonic Choir, led by Jonathan Rogers and accompanied by soloists including Swansea-born soprano Céline Forrest.
