Handel's Messiah: Re-imagined fuses together traditional choral and contemporary electroacoustic music to bring you a unique and innovative interpretation of a classic. Kantos Chamber Choir and Orchestra will be performing the traditional Messiah under the baton of conductor Elspeth Slorach.

An innovative combination of traditional and contemporary music, ‘Handel’s Messiah: Re-imagined’ will bring the best of two musical worlds together for a unique event.

The composers will discuss their thoughts on recreating Handel's Messiah in electroacoustic form in a free pre-performance talk.
