One of the musical delights of the City of London is the series of concerts that take place in many of the historic churches dotted around the Square Mile.
One of the oldest choirs in the City not connected directly to the churches is the Lloyd’s Choir which was first formed in 1922. The choir first performed in 1922, within the Underwriting Room at the Royal Exchange and concerts were then given regularly, mainly in the Public Hall of the same building.
After the Second World War, the choir was re-established and performed with considerable success. In the 1980s, the choir moved to St. Katharine Cree in Leadenhall Street which is still home to the choir today.
Since then, a series of professional conductors have greatly enhanced the reputation of the choir. The choir regularly perform concerts in various locations around the city and has featured on television several times.
One of the highlights of the choir’s year is the Spring Concert to be held in the beautiful St Katharine Cree Church in Leadenhall Street on 29th March 2017 at 7pm.
The programme will be a mixture of new and traditional favourites featuring music by Vaughan Williams, Dvorak, Brahms and Jacques Cohen.
Jacques Cohen will be conducting the choir and the Cohen Ensemble.
Tickets £15 available on the door, in advance from choir members or Eventbrite.co.uk (booking charges apply)
