We are a small friendly choir performing a broad repertoire from early to modern music. Founded in 1985, the Chandos Chamber Choir is an auditioned amateur choir of approximately 30 voices. The choirs performs at least three times a year both within London and further afield.

 

 

Our repertoire is wide ranging, covering both sacred and secular music from the sixteenth century to the present day. The choir is equally comfortable performing a cappella or with keyboard, chamber-ensemble or orchestra.

Approximately every two years we make a weekend visit to a British cathedral to perform at their services. Recently visits have been to Winchester, Lincoln, and Bristol cathedrals.
