Welcome to the Hanover Choir. We are a choir of about 35 people, based in the City of London near St Paul’s Cathedral. 70 years after our foundation in Hanover Square, we are still making great music and continuing to attract some of the liveliest people in London.
We sing most types of choral music, and have occasionally dipped our toes into both jazz and folk repertoire. Visit our repertoire page for information about previous events.
Membership is open to anyone with a good voice and some knowledge of musical notation. Singing with us is a stimulating and enjoyable experience. Since we are a small choir, your voice matters. Singing with the Hanover Choir is exciting, challenging and rewarding.
We rehearse on Thursday evenings during term times from 6.45pm to 8.45pm.
See the how to join page for further details, including a downloadable schedule of rehearsals, concerts and workshops.
Our next concert is on 1st April 2017 at St Stephen's, 112 Gloucester Rd, London SW7 4AL.
