The RFMS was founded in 1995 by a group of medical students at the Royal Free Hospital, later merging with a staff choir for a celebration at the hospital. It has now grown into a large and vibrant choir with members from all walks of life – from the hospital and the surrounding area.
We are an inclusive amateur choir, which aims high and welcomes new members of any voice part and experience; and we try to make sure our activities are fun – and accessible to all.
“I love being part of this friendly choir. I love discovering more about music more generally and my own abilities – it’s opening up a whole new world for me.”
“Ben is a marvelous musical director. We have a good balance of fun and discipline.”
“I didn’t know anyone when I first walked in on my own. Straightaway, people spoke to me and took me under their wing. I knew immediately I wanted to join.”
“I love the chance to sing your heart out after work!”
“I had never done anything like this in my life. The first concert I sang in was such a thrill – I was just surrounded by sound – from the choir, the orchestra and the organ. It gave me goose bumps!”
“I’ve made some really good friends in the choir. A great bonus on top of very enjoyable singing.”
