Passionate about great choral music
Welcome to our wonderful choral concerts in Birmingham’s magnificent Symphony Hall and historic Town Hall and the Elgar Concert Hall at the University of Birmingham. We are also looking forward to our centenary in 2021. Our inspirational music director is Adrian Lucas.

The City of Birmingham Choir are delighted to bring to the Elgar Hall two exciting and uplifting pieces of modern choral music both with a jazz and blues vibe.
