City Chamber Choir aims to revive neglected choral works from past ages, to search out the best in 20th century composition, and to plot musical pathways for the present century.
The choir is led by its hugely experienced founder, Stephen Jones, with guidance from its President, renowned composer Cecilia McDowall, and Patron, Bob Chilcott, and receives infusions of new music from up-and-coming ‘composers in residence.’ Our repertoire encompasses Palestrina, Howells, and popular Christmas carols, but ranges far and wide.
Formed in 1987 and comprising singers from many walks of life, we meet for rehearsals a stone’s throw from St Paul’s cathedral. Our home, St Anne and St Agnes church, also known as the Gresham Centre, was designed by Christopher Wren, has been rebuilt many times, and is itself an inspiration. We perform concerts there and in many more of the City of London’s beautiful Wren churches.
We are constantly looking to collaborate with singers, musicians and others from the arts, and regularly travel for concerts and workshops outside the City, beyond London and overseas.
We are always on the look-out for new members to join us on this exciting musical journey!
You can find out more about the choir on the About us page, or better still, come to our next concert.
