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.
We began rehearsals for this concert on 10th January. If you live locally, you would be very welcome to come and join us: there is still plenty of time!
Your choir needs you!
We are always keen to attract new members – especially tenors. If you would like to “try before you buy” feel free to come along to a rehearsal and try us out. We rehearse from 5.30-7 PM on Sundays at St. John of Jerusalem church, Lauriston Road, E9 7DL. Rehearsals for our next concert, on April 17th, started on January 10th, 2016, and will continue weekly.
