We are one of London's largest choral societies with around 300 regular members, offering amateur voices a wonderful opportunity to sing a variety of choral works under professional guidance. We perform in prestigious venues such as the Royal Festival Hall and Cadogan Hall, alongside professional orchestras and soloists. It's an exhilarating experience to sing on these stages and we are well known for our enthusiastic performances.
Barts Choir was started by a group of nurses at St Bartholomew's Hospital in 1965. We retain a connection with the hospital in both name and spirit and regularly invite staff of Barts Health NHS Trust to join their voices with ours.
We perform three major concerts a year and we also support smaller projects, such as carol events for 'Look Good Feel Better' and providing a choir for the Barts Health Annual Remembrance Service at St Paul’s Cathedral.
Each year we partner with a health-related charity, giving them support through publicity and by fund-raising. Last year we supported the Inner City Centre, a charity enabling access to affordable psychotherapy and counselling services in London and this year we partner with The Migraine Trust, an organisation that champions and funds research into the condition and supports those who experience this debilitating condition.
There’s nothing quite like Barts!
