BBC Concert Orchestra

A Classic Christmas

Watford Colosseum

Tuesday 11 December

Conductor Johannes Wildner


Roasted chestnuts and spiced apple strudel, gingerbread houses and deep-filled mince pies. Graceful French skaters pirouetting and leaping, sleigh rides and snow bells and mistletoe and wine. The excitement of advent, the yuletide rush. Christmases across Europe.

For the festive season this year we wanted to offer you something different, so under the baton of Johannes Wildner we bring you A Classic Christmas.

Programme includes:

Overture and excerpts from Hansel and Gretel Humperdinck
Sheep May Safely Graze JS Bach arr. Elms
‘How Beautiful are the Feet’ from Messiah Handel
Fantasy on Christmas Carols Arnold arr. Palmer
Skaters' Waltz Waldteufel
Legend Op. 54, No. 5 Tchaikovsky
‘Troika’ from Lieutenant Kijé Prokofiev

No Christmas celebration would be complete without carols for all – join us and fill Watford Colosseum with the sound of joyful voices in O Come all Ye Faithful, Silent Night, Once in Royal David’s City and Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
