Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus

James Burton, the Royal Northern Sinfonia, the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and a fine line-up of soloists perform the ‘Nelson Mass’. This great late work of Haydn’s is widely regarded as one of the composer’s supreme achievements. Originally conceived as a response to Napoleon’s aggressive and acquisitive foreign policy, it gained its nickname after Admiral Nelson defeated the French navy at the famous Battle of the Nile. It is an experience not to be missed.

TICKETS from £16 (concessions £5) (subject to booking fees) available online / 0114 2 789 789 / in person at the Sheffield City Hall Box Office.
