The Royal Free Music Society is a friendly, non-auditioned choir based at the Royal Free Hospital in North London. The choir was founded in 1999 by staff of the hospital but now includes many members of the local community. We have approximately 45 members in all and come together regularly to enjoy high-quality music-making whilst having fun. We take our Thursday evening rehearsals seriously but enjoy some social activities too.
We put on three or four concerts a year, often accompanied by our sister orchestra, the Hampstead Sinfonietta. Recent performances include Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Mendelsohn’s Elijah and and Vivaldi’s Gloria. We are fortunate to be able to count St. Mark’s Church in Primrose Hill as a regular venue for our performances.
The Society is a registered charity (1151170), run by a committee who are elected annually from and by the Society members.
