MiO Office Choir Winners 2017

  • St Paul's Church, Covent Garden Bedford Street London, WC2E 9ED United Kingdom

The Brandenburg Choral Festival of London is proud to host the fabulous winners of the Music in Offices (MiO) Choir of the Year Competition 2017, the choirs of Deloitte and MEC. The brilliant MiO initiative has got office workers singing their hearts out all over the place, and these two groups will have seen off some stiff competition to reach the final so we are in for some fantastic performances. And if two great choirs are not enough for you, also performing tonight are Real Voices, an energetic and eclectic choir led by Becky Chalmers. Expect the roof of St Paul’s Covent Garden to be raised with a real range of repertoire!
