London Concert Choir
London Concert Choir celebrated 50 years of music making in 2010. Formed in 1960 as the Brompton Choral Society and relaunched in 1986 under its new name, the choir now has around 150 members of a wide range of ages and regularly appears at all the major London concert venues, as well as touring to European destinations - most recently, Germany.
The choir provides a stimulating and enjoyable experience both for its members and for its audience and constantly aims to stretch its abilities and to extend its repertoire and range of styles. We put on a wide variety of classical music concerts, from unaccompanied church music to large-scale choral works, as well as giving concert performances of operas and songs from the shows.
Recent seasons have included Handel’s Coronation Anthems, Haydn’s oratorio The Creation and a reconstruction of Mozart’s C minor Mass. Among major works for choir and symphony orchestra have been Britten’s War Requiem, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with the English Chamber Orchestra and a joint performance of the Verdi Requiem with the choir of the Basilica of St Ulrich & Afra, Augsburg.
London Concert Choir has also presented concert versions of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Loewe’s My Fair Lady, as well as appearing in the Star Wars concerts at the O2 Arena. The choir regularly gives performances for charity and over the years has sung a number of specially commissioned works.
