The Royal Free Music Society Choir – North London

The Royal Free Music Society is a friendly classical choir, now rehearsing in St Saviours Church in Chalk Farm.  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 church. (  We also enjoy regular parties, quizzes and summer picnics – and have had some wonderful concert trips abroad .  

SUMMER TERM REHEARSALS:  THURSDAYS 7 – 8.30PM AT ST SAVIOURS CHURCH, ETON ROAD, NW3 4SQ starting on 21 April 2022.  We are planning a concert for the 25 June 2022 comprising  Vaughan Williams “Five Mystical Songs”, Britten “Rejoice in the Lamb” and pieces from the American Song Book.  The concert will be at St Mark’s Church, Primrose Hill, at 7pm.  Tickets are available at the door or in advance through TicketSource

We are following Government Covid guidance, assessing risks and making the space as Covid-secure as possible. Wearing masks for rehearsals is no longer compulsory, but you are welcome to do so.


We usually put on three concerts a year – often with our sister orchestra, the Hampstead Sinfonietta and talented guest soloists.  Recent performances include Handel’s Messiah, 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 concert venues.  

The Society is a registered charity (1151170), run by a committee, which is elected each year from and by the Society members.
