Barts Chamber Choir is a sub-group of around 40 Barts Choir members who perform in more intimate venues such as St Giles-in-the-Fields and St James's Paddington. Membership for each concert (normally two per year) is open to all members of Barts Choir and involves a short singing test. The repertoire for the Chamber Choir includes more challenging works and often involves a capella singing and divided voice parts. We welcome all members to join our chamber choir, but a commitment to learning the repertoire within a shorter time-frame than with our main choir is expected.

NEXT CONCERT: 'Resonances', 28 April 2018

The next Chamber Choir concert will be on Saturday 28 April 2018 at 6pm, at St Giles-in-the-Fields, with our guest conductor Julian Perkins. It features choral and piano works by the late Stephen Dodgson, including a World Premiere of three songs, Lines from Hal Summers. Dodgson was inspired by Holst and Holst, in turn, studied with Stanford, both of whom also feature in the programme. 

PROGRAMME: Byrd, Sing joyfully; Stanford, Justorum Animae & Beati Quorum Via; Holst, I love my love, I sowed the seeds of love, There was a tree; Dodgson, Lines from Hal Summers; Hilton, Fair Oriana; Parsons, Ave Maria; Britten, A hymn to the Virgin. Also two piano pieces by Stephen Dodgson: Air & Tambourin.

TICKETS are now available here and also at the main choir rehearsals, as well as on the door. Price £16 unallocated.
