Brighton Festival 2018 Bitesize - Belshazzar's Feast

May 24, 2018, 09:17 AM

Fifty years ago a new choir was launched with a performance of Walton’s epic cantata Belshazzar’s Feast. That choir was Brighton Festival Chorus, now established as one of the finest symphony choruses in the UK and an integral part of the Festival.

Just as in its 1968 debut, the Chorus is joined by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for this closing festival concert. 

Melita Dennett went to meet Gill Kay who programmes the Brighton Festival classical strand to find out more.
