Passionate about great choral music
Great Choral Music
We are delighted to bring you wonderful choral concerts in Birmingham’s magnificent Symphony Hall. We continue a great choral tradition of nearly 100 years.
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
Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610
Gloucester Cathedral, Saturday 23rd June 2018
More details in due course – our new venture into the marvellous Venetian sound world, performing in the superb surroundings of one of our great cathedrals.
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 finished our season in June with another away day to the glorious Tewkesbury Abbey for an evening of choral contrasts. In April we enjoyed a marvellous Tour to Vienna, including a cathedral performance of Handel’s Messiah. Symphony Hall in May saw our exciting collaboration with Birmingham Schools’ Symphony Orchestra under conductor Michael Seal, which lived up to expectations in Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast.
Our inspirational music director is Adrian Lucas.
