The Whitehall Choir is one of London’s leading amateur choirs. It has a varied repertoire including challenging unaccompanied pieces as well as larger choral works.
The Choir's Christmas Concert is on Thursday, 16 December. Alongside traditional carols such as Deck the Hall, we will sing some lesser-known pieces such as a new carol by Lillie Harris, Christmas Silence, and Summer is Gone by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. And there will be carols where we will expect the audience to join in.
Join Whitehall Choir
Sing with one of London’s leading amateur choirs
We begin rehearsals again on 7 September. After the Faure Requiem we’ll have our Christmas concert of carols and readings in December and then in March we perform Monteverdi Vespers with the period ensemble London Baroque Sinfonia. Our season concludes in June with a programme of music from the Baltic region – not only by composers such as Part and Tormis but also a range of music by less known composers.
The choir is friendly, ambitious and energetic – do contact us if you’d like to come along to try out a session, we’d love to meet you.
Our first live concert since 2019
On Thursday, 18 November, we gave our first concert with a live audience since before the first Covid lockdown. We sang Fauré’s Requiem and two modern pieces by American composers.
Some audience reactions:
Really wonderful concert – thank you. Feet haven’t touched the ground today. – Louise
Enjoyed every minute of this concert.
It was the first time I’d heard the choir and I was impressed with the ensemble singing, diction (which was excellent), warmth of the sound, dynamic range and intonation.
Also that the choir could meet so many of the challenges of pitch and rhythm presented within the first two pieces and were able to sing the movement about the sparrows with such wit. – Sue
…nice to see the Whitehall Choir back and performing. .. it was a beautiful concert, and I loved the Runestad – Anon
What a wonderful concert! I loved the two new pieces and think your conductor is fantastic, so full of energy and enthusiasm, and I simply adore the Requiem. It is so beautiful and just seems to get
better every time I hear it. Hope you enjoyed singing it all as much as I enjoyed listening! – Anon
