Winner of ‘Best New Classical Music Educational Initiative’ in the 2015 Music Teacher Awards for Excellence, the sixth Scratch® Youth Messiah takes place on Sunday 2 December at 14:00 at the Royal Albert Hall.  Since launching this event in 2013, almost 6,000 young singers have sung Handel’s Messiah with us, some of them returning each year having learnt a bit more of this great work. Could your choir join us in 2018? Ben Parry,  Artistic Director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, has been our inspirational conductor since 2016, and we are delighted to be working with him again this December.

Any youth choir – school, music hub, local authority, church or independent – can register to take part in the Scratch® Youth Messiah. If you know all about it already, download the 2018 registration form here.  To find out more, use the navigation bars at the top of the page.
