City Chorus Centenary Concert – 100 years of note!

Festival Details - "City Chorus Centenary Concert – 100 years of note!"...

City Chorus will commemorate 100 years of choral singing with 100 voices, professional soloists and large orchestra (Royal College of Music instrumentalists). We will perform Mozart Coronation Mass and Handel Zadok the Priest in Southwark Cathedral. Please join us for exceptional music in a grand setting. Famously convivial, City Chorus concerts are great fun: gatherings of family, friends and supporters of the choir. Our Centenary event will be a celebration as well as a memorable concert. We will commence with festive refreshments when doors open at 6.45pm. There will also be refreshments at the interval. Our wonderful musical director Paul Ayres conducts and accompanies several choral groups in London and works extensively as a composer and arranger.

“City Chorus is one of the longest running amateur choirs in London. In 2020 it celebrates one hundred years of continuous music making. Even at the height of the Blitz, after the first shock had passed, a small group of Choir members, led by Gerry Darling, continued to meet and sing, and kept the idea of the Choir going. Over its one hundred years, the Choir has faced many hurdles, and undergone many changes of name, but its core identity has remained constant. It is a group of enthusiastic amateur singers who give up their time every Tuesday evening to create something together: to sing, listen, work and laugh together. There is something very special and very liberating about submerging your worries, ambitions and desires to a communal project, where the sum is so much bigger than its parts.”
