The Royal Free Music Society is a friendly classical choir based at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, North London. We’re a welcoming mixed voice choir with up to about 60 members. There is no audition and you don’t need any previous choral experience, but we would hope you can hold a tune! Rehearsals are on a Thursday evening at the hospital. We also enjoy regular parties, quizzes and summer picnics – as well as concert trips abroad . Come and sing with us!
NB: DURING THE PANDEMIC WE CONTINUE TO MEET UP FOR REGULAR REHEARSALS, BUT WE ARE DOING SO ONLINE. WE WELCOME NEW ‘VIRTUAL’ MEMBERS, SO COME AND JOIN US! PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
OUR SUMMER TERM RUNS FROM THURSDAY 15th APRIL TO 17th JUNE (7 – 8.30PM). WE ARE SINGING REQUIEM BY GABRIEL FAURE (NOVELLO EDITION) AND REJOICE IN THE LAMB BY BENJAMIN BRITTEN (BOOSEY AND HAWKES EDITION)
We usually put on three concerts a year – often with our sister orchestra, the Hampstead Sinfonietta and talented guest soloists. Recent performances include Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Bach’s Magnificat and Haydn’s Creation. We are proud to count St. Mark’s Church in Primrose Hill and St John’s Wood Church as regular venues.
The Society is a registered charity (1151170), run by a committee, which is elected each year from and by the Society members.
