Returning to one of its favourite venues, the Parliament Choir stages a thrilling concert of choral and orchestral works at Cadogan Hall. The mighty force of 150 parliamentary voices is swelled by London’s finest and freshest orchestra of young professionals – Southbank Sinfonia – in partnership with players from L’Orchestre des Lauréats du Conservatoire de Paris.
Distinguished soloists In-Kyung Cha, Sung Eun Seo and Eugene Lee from Korea, Catrin Aur and Rhys Meirion from Wales and the Choir of the National Assembly of Korea unite with the Parliament Choir in this international celebration of music. In true Parliamentary style, all performers will be ‘whipped’ into shape by the Founder and Music Director of the Parliament Choir, Simon Over.
This feast of orchestral and choral music includes Mendelssohn’s resplendent Song of Praise, Bruch’s Violin Concerto and O’Neill’s Of All Persons and Estates, the latter written especially for the Parliament Choir by Composer-in-Residence and Chorus Master, Nicholas O’Neill.
One place in the Palace of Westminster where harmony does break out.

Anyone at Westminster, from peers to kitchen porters, can join; but there’s nothing ragtag about the sound they produce: joyful and disciplined, lifting every spirit.
