Chamber Choir Ireland
Tchaikovsky’s Liturgy of St John Chrysostom
Conductor Paul Hillier

St. Thomas’ Church, Eglantine Avenue

We are delighted to welcome Chamber Choir Ireland, led by Paul Hillier back to Belfast for the first time since 2018 as they present Tchaikovsky’s sublime Liturgy of St John Chrysostom – so rarely heard in its entirety.

 Best known for his Romantic symphonies and ballets, Tchaikovsky was not devoutly religious. Nevertheless, he held a deep interest in the music of the Russian Orthodox Church, bringing all his characteristic emotional expressiveness to this sacred text, and producing some of his most personal and moving music in this large-scale work.

Chamber Choir Ireland concerts were a real jewel in our annual programme and it has felt like an age since we last welcomed them to Belfast. Taking place in the beautiful acoustics of St. Thomas’ Church (Eglantine Avenue) they are truly special concerts – we can’t recommend them highly enough. Come along!

Doors: 7.30pm
Concert: 8pm
Duration: Approx. 1 hour
