The Brandenburg Choral Festival
The Brandenburg Choral Festival exists as a platform for amateur choirs to perform in Central London venues.
It is London's biggest and broadest celebration of all things choral - and we mean everything!
Over the year we bring together choirs and vocal ensembles of different shapes and sizes, and from every musical background - classical and jazz, a cappella or accompanied, gospel, male voice, choral scholars, community choirs, and a whole lot more besides!
With two main seasons each year - the Spring Series and the Autumn Series - the Brandenburg Choral Festival presents over a hundred concerts 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.
The Spring Series opens at the end of December and runs through to the first May Bank Holiday. You can read more about our past seasons and browse listings of the 2014 season 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. For the 2014 Spring Series we used our very own Brandenburg Festival Chorus to perform Messiah - a new tradition we aim to continue!
If you would like to take part in a future Chorus event, find out more about the BFC here.
The Autumn Series runs from mid-September through to November.
We will open on Thursday 11 September with three events at St Martin-in-the-Fields, and will close at the Royal Courts of Justice on Tuesday 11 November.
Be part of an historic event!
The 2014 Autumn Series brochure has hit the streets - so our next job is to start planning the 2015 Spring Series!
If you conduct, sing with, or support a choir that you think should be involved, then please get in touch. Just send us an email, or fill in the contact form and tell us a bit about the choir.
For budding audience members, there is plenty to choose from: during Spring 2014 we featured more than 80 choirs in 70 concerts at 11 different venues over four months - and that's only part of the year!
And of course there are our fabulous Fringe Club Nights... Find out more about them on the Fringe Club page.
