The London Chorus

The London Chorus is London's most versatile choir, practising and performing a challenging and varied repertoire and continually developing its tradition of excellence. Founded as the London Choral Society in 1903 in order to bring Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius to London, the choir established its tradition of innovation right from the start, giving a number of first performances in its early years. This has continued up to the present day. In recent years the choir has promoted the first London performances of works by Samuel Barber, Frank Martin, Richard Blackford, Ronald Corp and others, as well as performing an extremely wide repertoire ranging from plainsong, through the mainstream choral repertoire, to music of the present day, both classical and on the lighter side.

The 120 members of the choir are amateur singers from all walks for life, but performances are at the highest professional level. Singing with The London Chorus provides an unparalleled opportunity for amateurs to work with the most prestigious orchestras, conductors and soloists in the world. Performances are given in all the major London venues, as well as elsewhere in England and abroad.

Ronald Corp, who joined the choir as Chorus Master in 1985, and was appointed Musical Director in 1994, is one of the country's foremost choral conductors. Under his direction the choir has developed to give performances at a standard which is second-to-none. Ronald Corp received an OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours Lists in January 2012 for his services to music.
