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 THIS TIME OF COVID-19 WHILE IT IS NOT SAFE TO SING TOGETHER PHYSICALLY, WE CONTINUE TO MEET ONLINE FOR REGULAR THURSDAY EVENING ‘VIRTUAL REHEARSALS’. WE WELCOME NEW ‘VIRTUAL’ MEMBERS! PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
OUR NEXT TERM STARTS ON SEPT 10th 2020 AND WE WILL BE SINGING HANDEL’S GLORIOUS CORONATION ANTHEMS.
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. Covid-permitting, we hope our next concert will be Handel’s Messiah.
The Society is a registered charity (1151170), run by a committee, which is elected each year from and by the Society members.
