Welcome to the Hanover Choir. We are a choir of about 30 people, based in the City of London near St Paul’s Cathedral. 60 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. See the concerts page for details of our repertoire.
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. And since we're directed by outstanding professional conductor/composer Huw Morgan, singing with the Hanover Choir is exciting, challenging and rewarding.
Play the audio above to hear it from Hanover Choir members themselves, and to gain an impression of the standards we achieve in our concert performances.
See the how to join page for further details, including a downloadable schedule of rehearsals, concerts and workshops for the 2010/11 season.
We are affiliated to the National Federation of Music Societies, and have achieved the status of a registered charity (no 295306). You can download a copy of our constitution from the charities page.
New recession-friendly ticket price! Students and unemployed can attend Hanover Choir concerts for only £6.
