What we're about

JOIN THE LONDON CLASSICAL CHOIR! You will be made very welcome.

Before coming the first time email Matthew, subject heading LCC, at maestromattheww@yahoo.co.uk, and you will be sent pdfs of the music. For rehearsal dates, venue, payment (half-price for students, concessions available) and recordings see londonclassicalchoir.com.

Do you love singing great classical music from all periods, and enjoy interesting programmes such as From Darkness to Light and Music from the Americas? Would you like to join a friendly, multicultural group of about thirty people and take your singing to the next level? Would you like to take part in regular concerts with the London Classical Orchestra and perform in venues such as the V&A Museum and Trafalgar Square and to venues across the world via livestream? Are you interested in solo opportunities?

We meet two Fridays a month very near Chalk Farm tube and there are no auditions. Being able to read music helps, but if you pick up songs quickly by ear you are also welcome (we provide online practice tracks so you can practise at home). After rehearsals enjoy a well-deserved drink in a fine local pub. The choir was started in 2018 by the prize-winning conductor Matthew Watts, who will help you learn the music, improve your sight-singing and vocal technique.

If you are new to choral singing and enjoy music in all styles (pop, classical, world and gospel) then we recommend you try the Primrose Hill Choir, and if you know any primary aged children who enjoy singing then there is the Primrose Hill Children’s Choir.
