Passionate about great choral music

Singing in Symphony Hall

Singing in Symphony Hall

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 new recording of Mahler’s 2nd Symphony transcribed for organ by David Briggs was described as riveting on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review.

Our next concerts

Finally, on 17th June, we have another away day to the glorious Tewkesbury Abbey for a tremendous evening of choral contrasts.
We had a period of intensive rehearsals through the first few months of 2017, then in April we enjoyed a marvellous Tour to Vienna, including a cathedral performance of Handel’s Messiah.

On 20th May in Symphony Hall, our exciting collaboration with Birmingham Schools’ Symphony Orchestra under conductor Michael Seal lived up to expectations in Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast.
