City Chorus is celebrating its 100th Anniversary with a birthday concert on 17th June 2022. Please join us for exceptional music in a grand setting.

Famously convivial, City Chorus concerts are great fun: gatherings of family, friends and supporters of the choir. There will be refreshments at the interval. Our musical director Paul Ayres conducts and accompanies several choral groups in London, and works extensively as a composer and arranger.

“City Chorus is one of the longest running amateur choirs in London. In 2020 it reached one hundred years of continuous music making. Even at the height of the Blitz, after the first shock had passed, a small group of Choir members, led by Gerry Darling, continued to meet and sing, and kept the idea of the Choir going. Over its one hundred years, the Choir has faced many hurdles, and undergone many changes of name, but its core identity has remained constant. It is a group of enthusiastic amateur singers who give up their time every Tuesday evening to create something together: to sing, listen, work and laugh together. There is something very special and very liberating about submerging your worries, ambitions and desires to a communal project, where the sum is so much bigger than its parts.”
