This summer the Philharmonia Chorus made its first appearance at the Rheingau Music Festival in two concerts of English music.

On August 31, the Chorus was accompanied by organist Thomas Frank in a programme of music from the English Musical Renaissance, 1850 - 1930, in the Marktkirche in Wiesbaden. Choral works by Stanford, Parry, Wood, Elgar and Vaughan Williams were conducted by Stefan Bevier. The concert was recorded by Deutschlandfunk for future transmission.

Two days later on 2 September, the Chorus took part in the final concert of the 2017 Rheingau Music Festival, a performance of Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius in the Basilica of the Kloster Eberbach, with mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge, tenor Brenden Gunnell, baritone Markus Eiche, and the Symphoniker Hamburg. The performance was conducted by Paul McCreesh.
