The London Chorus is London’s most versatile choir, practicing and performing a challenging and varied repertoire and continually developing its tradition of excellence. Formerly known as the London Choral Society, the 120 members of the choir are amateur singers from all walks for life, but performances are at the highest professional level under the baton of composer and conductor Ronald Corp OBE.
Singing with The London Chorus provides an unparalleled opportunity for amateurs to work with the most prestigious orchestras, conductors and soloists in the world. They regularly perform at The Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall, Royal Festival Hall and St John’s Smith Square, and have made appearances at Twickenham, Lord’s Cricket Ground and on BBC Songs of Praise and the X-Factor!
