Ealing Choral Society



ECS News


    Welcome to the website of Ealing Choral Society, one of London's best choirs. We are an amateur choir, performing with world-class orchestras and soloists in Ealing, as well as Central London and occasionally abroad. We are proud to be part of West London's vibrant classical music scene.

    Every year at Christmas time, Ealing Choral Society supports a local charity with the proceeds of our carol concert.

    This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to hold our usual live concert. Instead, however, we have put together recordings from past carol concerts, together with seasonal readings recorded specially for the occasion, to create an online Charity Carol Concert.

    This compilation will be broadcast on our YouTube channel on the 12th December 2020 at 7pm. You will find our channel at tinyurl.com/EalingChoralSociety. We hope that you will be able to join us on the evening, but if not, the concert will be available for viewing until 26th December 2020.

    We have had a long and happy association with Meadow House Hospice over the years, and so we chose to support them this year with the proceeds from this concert. One of the carols performed in this concert will be the Butterfly Carol, which was commissioned by ECS Members and Associates, and composed by our Director of Music Jonathan Williams, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Hospice in 2017.

    To donate to Meadow House Hospice go to justgiving.com/fundraising/ecs-supporting-meadow-house-hospice. Meadow House Hospice serves the population of the boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow, caring for people who have a life limiting or terminal condition. They support families and carers too and aim to show compassion, care, respect and dignity at all times. The money raised will be used to enhance the environment for their patients, such as the upkeep of their award winning garden. It will also be used to provide pieces of specialist furniture for their patients.


    Season's Greetings to all our supporters and we wish you health and happiness in 2021!
