The Brandenburg Choral Festival

Upcoming highlights:


London's biggest and broadest annual choral celebration is underway for another year.

The Brandenburg Choral Festival exists as a platform for amateur choirs to perform in Central London venues.

The Festival opens at the end of December and runs through to the first May Bank Holiday, providing more than four months of unparalleled variety.

Centred geographically and spiritually around St. Martin-in-the-Fields, other venues include St Clement Danes, Temple Church, Corpus Christi Maiden Lane and the National Portrait Gallery. Find out more about our venues here

Traditionally the opening concert of the Festival is Messiah - a concert where all singers in the audience are invited to stand and join in with the Hallelujah chorus. Festival 14 was opened by our very own Brandenburg Festival Chorus performing - if you weren't there, you missed a treat!
