Passionate about great choral music

Singing in Symphony Hall

Singing in Symphony Hall

Welcome to our wonderful choral concerts in Birmingham’s magnificent Symphony Hall and in historic Town Hall. We are also looking forward to our centenary in 2021. Our inspirational music director is Adrian Lucas.

Seemingly effortless voice production – clean entries, clear text, a true joy.
