The St. John of Jerusalem Festival Chorus is a community choir which has been performing major choral works in Hackney for more than 15 years.

Performances have included works by Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Britten and Vivaldi; for a full list click on this link: Past Concerts. The choir has also taken part in opera concerts at the Hackney Empire and a music festival in Paris. We rehearse and perform at St. John of Jerusalem Church and, although we are not a church choir, some members have also sung in church events, including the annual carol service.

Members also organize and take part in social and fund-raising events. See our “Events” page or click on the image below.
