Join Barts Choir for Summer Term
Get started with us on March 20th, 27th March or April 1st
No matter where you are in the singing spectrum, this term Barts is taking a fresh approach to building singing skills and choral inspiration.
Barts is renowned for professionally led rehearsals that culminate in performance at major London concert venues. Our Spring term finished this week, with our performance of Parry's 'Blest Pair of Sirens' and Vaughan Williams' tumultuous 'Sea Symphony' at the Royal Festival Hall. Barts Choir joined with the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Ivor Setterfield, to deliver an enthralling evening to a rapturous audience. For us as singers, the inspiring evening once more underpinned our belief that in the world of choral music - 'There's nothing quite like Barts!'
Our summer terms starts on Monday 20th March at St Cyprian's, close by Baker Street tube and you're welcome to come along at 6.45pm to share the experience or at the same time on the 27th. On Saturday the 1st we will be at Rudolph Steiner House (also near Baker Street). There's no audition - We believe you'll soon decide if Barts is the Choir for you.
Our repertoire this term is Bach’s B Minor Mass.
Bach’s B Minor Mass is by any standards one of the great monuments of Western music culture and, some have said, the greatest piece of choral music ever written. Our warm welcome reaches out to existing members, new members & guest singers to join us to learn, perfect and perform this wonderfully uplifting piece. You can join us in a number of ways.

Beyond the main choir ...
Our Chamber Choir gives our more ambitious members an opportunity to excel and perform rare and special works to appreciative audiences in central London churches.
If you want to get serious about really learning to sing well then one of our optional group or individual singing lessons could be just what you are looking for in finding your true voice.
Our social activities range from a drink after rehearsal to top show theatre and dinner evenings, the occasional quiz night and our latest initiative in development - summer cycle rides.
