Attention: Much to our regret, the Netherlands Chamber Choir is forced to cancel the yearly tour of the Christmas Oratorio due the measures currently in place to halt the spread of Covid-19. Ticket holders will be contacted by the concert halls. 

Timpani thundering and trumpets sounding: the Nederlands Kamerkoor has created a tradition with its annual performance of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. Each year the choir invites a renowned orchestra to help perform Bach’s Christmas masterpiece. This year the choir is renewing its collaboration with Concerto Köln in a performance of the Christmas Oratorio in a small-scale setting: comforting and close. The solo parts are sung by members of the choir, and Hugo Hymas takes on the rol of Evangelist. A wonderful opportunity to enjoy the solistic top quality of the singers of the Nederlands Kamerkoor in an intimate setting and moving rendition of Bachs Christmas Oratorio.
