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.

Concert includes Five Christmas Carols arranged David Willcocks, for choir and the audience—don’t miss your chance to join in!
This concert will surely put you in a holiday mood.
Rejoice in Puccini’s beautiful melodies in the first half, then let Vaughan-Williams carol settings bring you tidings of comfort and joy and finally, get your chance to join in with the choir and the orchestra to sing your favourite carols.
A great start to your Christmas. Don’t miss it.
Your choir needs you!
We are always keen to attract new members. 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. Check out our Join page and contact the Choir Secretary to find out more.
