City Chamber Choir was founded in 1987 by Stephen Jones to explore neglected choral repertoire, especially 20th century British music.
The choir rehearses and performs in the City of London, and has sung concerts in many of the beautiful and historic churches in the City as well as venues elsewhere in England, France and Germany.
Performing to professional standards, the choir has won many accolades for its music-making, including reaching the semi-finals of the Sainsbury’s Choir of the Year competition, being invited to perform in St Paul’s Cathedral as accompaniment to the English National Ballet and being invited to record by the British Music Society.
A recent review in the Church Times said: “A whole evening of unaccompanied music of considerable complexity was delivered with panache and elegance.”
You can find out more about the choir on the About us page, or better still, come to our next concert!
