Join Whitehall Choir
Sing with one of London’s leading amateur choirs
We are looking for enthusiastic and talented singers to join us. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays, from 6.30pm to 9pm in the Parish Hall on the 2nd floor above St Peter's, Eaton Square, London SW1W 9AL. The new term began with an open rehearsal on 10 April, when we made a start on preparing for our concert of American music on 28 June, including Bernstein's Chichester Psalms. We still have room for more tenors - if you are interested, email email@example.com and come along to next Tuesday's rehearsal.
Our Music Director, Jo Tomlinson, has chosen the programmes for the season that begins in September 2018. In November, we will be joining forces with Austrian choir, Cantus Novus Wien, to sing a programme of music by mostly women composers. This will include works by Barbara Strozzi, Hildegard von Bingen, Fanny Mendelssohn, Alma Mahler, Judith Weir and Roxanna Panufnik, but also a piece by our previous conductor Paul Spicer which Cantus Novus Wien was blown away by when we sang it in Vienna in 2016. The Austrian choir may also be singing music by Bruckner and Brahms. It should be a treat.
In March 2019 we will sing Haydn’s Creation at St John’s Smith Square. And then in June we will sing a selection of secular music by British composers including George Shearing and Cecilia McDowall at St Peter’s Eaton Square.
