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. 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.
