Passionate about great choral music
Great Choral Music
We are delighted to bring you wonderful choral concerts in Birmingham’s magnificent Symphony Hall, the Elgar Concert Hall and at Tewkesbury Abbey over the next few months. Plus a visit to Vienna!
Our next concerts
We have a period of intensive rehearsals through the first few months of 2017, then in April comes our Tour to Vienna, including a cathedral performance of Handel’s Messiah.
On 20th May in Symphony Hall, we will have a really exciting collaboration with Birmingham Schools’ Symphony Orchestra under conductor Michael Seal, culminating in Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast. Finally, on 17th June, we have another away day to the glorious Tewkesbury Abbey for a tremendous concert of English music.
We can provide a choir for weddings, parties or other occasions. Voices from the City of Birmingham Choir have been enthusiastically received at a wide range of events. A choir of between 10 and 30 singers can perform serious or more light-hearted songs to suit the mood. Read MORE.
The 2015-2016 season comprised:
Fright Night Classics with the CBSO – 31st October
Spectacular Classics – 14th November (twice)
Handel’s Messiah with the CBSO – 4th December
Christmas with Aled Jones – 19th December

Our inspirational music director is Adrian Lucas.
Seemingly effortless voice production – clean entries, clear text, a true joy.
We are enjoying learning some pretty tough music, not the least in the guise of Belshazzar’s Feast. If you have never heard Walton’s great work, listen to a recording and then book tickets at www.thsh.co.uk to our performance with BSSO and Michael Seal on Saturday 20th May. Tickets are at bargain price.
First unleashed on the musical scene in 1931, this jazzy, dramatic, evocative and electrifying piece pulls no punches in telling the famous story of the Babylonian king and the ‘writing on the wall’.
