City of Bristol Choir joins Exultate Singers and the Seniors of Bristol Youth Choir and the Bristol Ensemble together with the extraordinarily talented violinist Gilles Apap for this celebration of the music of Mozart.

City of Bristol Choir, Exultate Singers and Bristol Youth Choir under the baton of conductor David Ogden perform one of the most treasured and poignant works of the choral repertoire, Mozart’s Requiem.

The Requiem’s dramatic and fiery choral writing, combined with moments of great tenderness, beauty and passion, make it a deeply moving piece to hear live in concert.

In his first performance in the UK with an orchestra, Gilles Apap performs Mozart’s Violin Concerto No.5. Hailed as a true violinist of the 21st century by Yehudi Menuhin, Gilles Apap is a classical violinist who has also become widely known for his remarkable ability to integrate a variety of musical genres.

City of Bristol Choir, Exultate Singers and Bristol Youth Choir under the baton of conductor David Ogden perform one of the most treasured and poignant works of the choral repertoire, Mozart’s Requiem.

Tickets are available in four price bands at £25, £20, £15 and £10, with tickets for under 26s available at £8, and under 18s £1 (plus Colston Hall booking fees).
