The Camden Choir

Our 47th Season
(2018 – 2019)

Founded in 1971 by Musical Director Julian Williamson, the Camden Choir has established itself as an adventurous and ambitious choir, unafraid to tackle even the most challenging choral music, and dedicated to including lesser known works in its eclectic and wide-ranging repertoire. We aim to combine mainstream works by composers such as J S Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn and others, with more unusual and musically challenging pieces.

In recent seasons we have performed Handel’s Saul, Charpentier's Te Deum in D major, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle, Brahms’ Requiem (in his own two-piano version), motets by Giaches de Wert, Parry’s Ode to Music, and Richard Blackford’s Mirror of Perfection. In November 2016, we performed the world première of Dani Howard’s MIA TErra, with the London City Orchestra which commissioned the work. We are delighted to be singing the world première of Dani’s Alexa, commissioned by a member of the Camden Choir, in March 2019.

Rehearsing on Monday evenings within 5 minutes’ walk from Chalk Farm tube station (Northern Line), the Choir attracts both local singers and others from further afield. New members are always welcome: please go to our Join Us page. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN CAMDEN.
