Twickenham Choral

TCS, with over 100 voices, has been impressing audiences for nearly 100 years both in the UK and abroad. As well as performing the great choral classics TCS has worked with many living composers giving several UK premieres.

Christopher Herrick has been the choir’s conductor since 1974. In that time he has led the choir’s development, working with them to perform a huge range of repertoire alongside top-class instrumentalists and vocal soloists in concerts locally as well as in Westminster Abbey, the Royal Albert Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Guildford Cathedral and in many exciting European venues.

Our partner orchestras are the Brandenburg Sinfonia and the Brandenburg Baroque Soloists.

We also have a Facebook page, you can on Twitter.

Critics' corner

  • At St Martin-in-the-Fields: The standing ovation said it all. Apparently this was unique in the recent history of Brandenburg concerts in St Martin’s, so you should be very proud along with your fellow music makers – the wonderful band and the specially good line up of soloists.
  • At Cadogan Hall: We took this opportunity to hear the Honegger’s Christmas Cantata, an old favourite, very rarely performed in London, and were bowled over by the performance by Twickenham Choral. This was a fabulous evening…A great start to London classical musical life in 2020! ...read more.

COVID 19 UPDATE

Rehearsals in person are suspended until further notice and the concert planned for 27 June is cancelled, but in the meantime we are meeting every Thursday under Rebecca’s direction to have fun, learn new repertoire and keep our voices up to standard, while we prepare for a possible virtual performance. We are monitoring the situation regularly, so keep checking here for news of our future season.

Choir members: our summer party is cancelled, but the dates of a virtual social get-together and the AGM will be emailed to you shortly.

If you are interested in joining the choir at a later date in time for our Centenary in the 2021/22 season, contact joining@twickenhamchoral.org.uk, perhaps with a view to singing with us for a couple of virtual rehearsals or attending in person when we reconvene. You will be most welcome!

We are also interested in hearing from anyone who would like to sponsor or give to the choir as we approach our Centenary – for more details see the Support Us page.
