The musical season runs from September to June and typically consists of three main concerts in major venues in and around London and a local Christmas concert in the Wimbledon area. As well as promoting its own concerts, the choir is invited regularly to participate in other events with several of Britain’s leading orchestras and in collaboration with other choirs. The 2016/17 season starts on Monday 5th September. See our Join Us
page for further details.
Concerts in the 2016/17 season find us in Southwark Cathedral, Cadogan Hall in March 2017 for the Monteverdi Vespers and in Tallinn, Estonia for the second choir tour at the end of May. Click on the brochure image above right to see the full programme for the season.
