The St. John of Jerusalem Festival Chorus is a community choir which has been performing major choral works in Hackney since 1997.

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, members have also sung in church events, including the annual carol service. For additional information see our “About” page.

Members also organize and take part in social and fund-raising events, most recently a car boot sale and a quiz night. See our “Events” page for fuller information.
