The Brandenburg Choral Festival OF LONDON
The Brandenburg Choral Festival of London 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 - Brandenburg presents over a hundred concerts of unparalleled variety. Find out more about them below.
Centred geographically and spiritually around St. Martin-in-the-Fields, other venues include St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, Temple Church, Corpus Christi Maiden Lane, Royal Courts of Justice, National Portrait Gallery, St James's Sussex Gardens and many more. 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 - for 2016 that will be 29 December to 2 May.
The 2016 Spring Series brochure has now hit the streets, so look out for a copy at your local music shop, library or church. You can also get a sneak preview here, with a clickable online version.

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. In recent years, we have opened the Spring Series with our very own Brandenburg Festival Chorus performing - and what a fantastic performance it is!
The Chorus singers' list is full for this year's Messiah, but if you would like to take part in a future Festival Chorus event, find out more about the BFC here.
Come & Sing!
Another fantastic way of taking part in the Festival is to come along to one of our Come & Sing events.
Each season we provide a selection of events that will appeal to seasoned choral singers and newcomers to the singing scene.
In the Spring we have two fabulous Come & Sing events lined up - the first is a study of Mozart Requiem with Bob Porter on Sunday 24 April. The date of the second event has had to change and now follows after the close of the Spring Series - opera choruses with Ralph Allwood is now on Saturday 14 May.
