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. Details of our next concert are on the right. 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. And since we're directed by outstanding professional conductor/composer Huw Morgan, singing with the Hanover Choir is exciting, challenging and rewarding.
See the how to join page for further details, including a downloadable schedule of rehearsals, concerts and workshops.

What does Christmas mean to you? Presents? Drinking and Eating? Or do you feel that you’re in need of something truly uplifting? In which case, we have just the thing for you – the Hanover Choir Carol Concert. It’s on Thursday 11th December at 7.30pm in Cheapside, near to St Paul’s tube.
We’ve got a great collection of music, including most of your old favourites, and you can sing along with the most popular, including Silent Night, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem and Sussex Carol. You will feel the music reverberating around the hallowed space, in a way that can never be matched by a download or some shouty kids in a shopping centre.
We’re in the fantastic surroundings of St Mary Le Bow on Cheapside, which is not to be missed. According to tradition, a true Cockney must be born within earshot of the sound of its bells. Destroyed twice, first by the Great Tornado of London in 1091, and then by the great fire in 1666, it was spectacularly re-built by Wren. Inside features a remarkable huge pendant cross, and a superlative organ, which will be played by our expert guest organist, Ian Shaw.
The concert starts at 7.30pm, and should be finished by about 9.15. We’ll have an interval with mince pies and wine, which will be very jolly. You can book discounted tickets in advance (click below), or simply turn up at the door. You can be sure of a warm festive welcome.
