Passionate about great choral music
Great Choral Music
Our next concert
Tickets are now on sale for another of our delightful afternoon concerts, this time featuring music for choir and two pianos.
Great music by Elgar, Brahms – his lovely Liebeslieder (Love Song) Waltzes, Michael Tippett and featuring hugely popular contemporary composer Bob Chilcott’s Five Days That Changed the World, we are sure you will want to join us again at the Elgar Concert Hall.
Our wonderful annual “lightness of touch” Handel’s Messiah starts the Christmas season, with fine soloists and a chamber-sized CBSO.
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.

We were truly privileged to hear this fine performance by the inspired City of Birmingham Choir— Birmingham Post, December 2014
Tickets are on sale for our next concert.
We very much enjoyed performing our Folk Songs and Finzi concert at the Elgar Concert Hall with the “remarkable little Westminster Chamber Orchestra”. We were praised for “such a wonderful homogeneity of tone from all four vocal sections, and the lightness of touch” with which our large choir delivers its singing. The Elgar hall was a lovely place to sing in, and we look forward to returning there on 6th November for our programme, Songs From a Changing World. (Read REVIEW.)
Our annual highlight is Birmingham’s own performance of Handel’s Messiah (Friday 2nd December), a City of Birmingham Choir tradition. With “a chamber sized CBSO and committed soloists”, we hope, once again, to bring you “seemingly effortless voice production – clean entries, clear text, a true joy”.
