Congratulations to members of the orchestra, choir and soloists who struggled and won against severely-reduced public transport to join in the Come & Sing in The Great Hall at Barts on Sunday afternoon!
It turned out to be the best way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon. Wonderful music and enthusiastic musicians joined together to produce an enjoyable performance.
Thanks to all involved.
Join us for our Easter Concert of Bach’s St John Passion, written for the Good Friday Vespers service of 1724.
Baton down at 7.30 pm on Monday 28th March in The Great Hall at Barts Hospital. Tickets are available at the door and all proceeds go to Barts Cancer Unit for the benefit of the patients.
Bring a friend and let Bach’s dramatisation give a different perspective to your Easter.

The Great Hall at Barts is an impressive historical environment for our concerts. Ascend the stairs and marvel at the Hogarth paintings before being seated amidst benevolence past and present.
TRANSPORT – Train: City Thameslink (Holborn Viaduct exit) – Tube: St Pauls (Central), Barbican, Farringdon (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan) – Bus: 46 56 (Bart’s Hospital), 8 25 521 (City Thameslink), 100 (King Edward Street)
If you enjoy singing and like an informal approach, join our choir – we welcome new members. For information, message us via our Contact Us page.
The Christmas Concert was good fun and a great way to start the festive season – thanks to everyone’s input and contribution.
We start the January term on Friday 7th January 2022 at 7.00 pm in St Bartholomew the Less Church, rehearsing St John Passion by Bach – copies will be available at the practice to purchase if required. New singers are welcome to join us as we work towards our Easter Concert at the end of March.
Rehearsals will be socially distanced and well ventilated so do ensure you wear enough warm cloths!
Remember, if you have any signs or symptoms of just an ordinary cold, it would be best not to come.
Also in the interest of keeping everyone safe, it is good practice for those attending choir rehearsals on Fridays to complete a negative lateral flow test each time before coming. Obviously, if it is positive, do not attend the session. This is not compulsory, nor is proof of the result required, just a request and a sensible precaution.
