Wigmore Hall director John Gilhooly said: ‘At the end of this tumultuous year, we are pleased to be able to bring choirs back to Wigmore Hall for three raptly beautiful Christmas programmes. News of the vaccine has brought renewed hope for 2021, and it is with this cautious optimism that Wigmore Hall will continue to support musicians in the challenging winter months ahead.’
