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.

“Achieved is the glorious work..” crowns the end of Act II. And what a glorious work it is indeed. From the musical representation of chaos in the prelude, to the fantastic chorus at the end, there is simply nothing in Franz Joseph Haydn’s piece that is less than a first rate musical experience.

Come with us on the journey of light from the darkness, the emergence of life, and the pleasures of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. It’s an allegory for the Enlightenment, that magnificent flowering of art and science in the 18th Century.

This performance is in English and has the leading roles played by Zoë Silkstone (Soprano), Jake White (Tenor) and Peter Norris (Bass). Nick Pope, the prize-winning pianist and regular Master Class performer at Edinburgh Festival, is providing the accompaniment.

We are at our normal base of St Stephen’s Church in South Kensington. It’s a beautiful Victorian church, 5 minutes north from Gloucester Rd tube, next to Barclays Bank. There is some free parking in the evening in the streets nearby for those that come by car.

The performance will last about two hours including a refreshment break, where you are welcome to take in the summer evening with a glass of wine. You can book your tickets online in advance with a discount. Tickets are also available on the door from 7.00pm.
