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.

Our Musical Director, Tori Longdon, started in September 2016. Click here or scroll down for Tori's biography.

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.
