Haven’t sung in a while? Looking for the right choir?
We are hosting an open rehearsal on Thursday 7th May
6:45 pm at The Gresham Centre, EC2V 7BX
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.

We were tempted to call this concert “Prague Spring”, but sadly these great Czech artists come from outside the capital. Nevertheless, you can be assured of a great evening of Slavonic excitement from these two masterworks.
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.
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.
Hanover Choir's music director, Huw Morgan, is also Director of the Merbecke Choir of Southwark Cathedral, and founder/director of the Blackheath Camerata.
He administrates and produces for Sfz Music, the record label of His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, and was music advisor on a forthcoming major British film starring Brenda Blethyn.
He also has a growing reputation as a composer, whose work includes a Southwark Cathedral commission to mark the 600th anniversary of the death of the poet John Gower in 2010.
