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.
Bach's St John Passion - Thursday, 30 March at 7:30pm
In the run up to Easter, the Choir will be performing Bach's St John Passion at St John's Smith Square on Thursday, 30 March. We will be joined by the period ensemble, London Baroque Sinfonia, and by top soloists including Thomas Hobbs as the Evangelist.
The St John Passion was first performed on Good Friday in 1724 in Leipzig’s Nikolaikirche. It is one of the greatest masterworks of sacred choral music
