Passionate about great choral music!
We love to sing
Find out more.
We love singing, and take part in a broad range of concerts performing at a very high musical standard. Most of our concerts are in Symphony Hall or Town Hall, Birmingham. So far this season, we have given successful and audience-acclaimed performances of Handel’s Messiah, our sparkling family concert Christmas Treats, Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man and Mozart’s Requiem, and, most recently, Mahler’s Third Symphony.
Our next concert is our English Reflections programme. Visit our concerts page for more details..
Our smaller group, Voices from the City of Birmingham Choir, has performed at the NEC Festive Gift Fair and at weddings and major corporate Christmas events, and are available for hire – please enquire!
Our rehearsals at present take us into a broad and deep sound world of harmonic richness and polyphonic mastery, often singing in 8-part (double choir) formation. From the “Technicolor” sound world of Holst’s Hymn of Jesus to the Tudor masterpiece that is Orlando Gibbons’ O Clap Your Hands Together, via Vaughan Williams’ moving Dona Nobis Pacem and Mendelssohn’s Mass for Double Choir, we have plenty to get our voices into.
Meanwhile, we are planning an enterprising and innovative season for 2014-15. As we say, we are “Passionate about great choral music!”
