Choir

Ealing Choral Society was founded in 1962 and has at present a strength of 90 singers.

We maintain a consistently high standard over a very wide range of choral works and always perform with professional orchestra and soloists. We have sung most of the great choral classics over the last few years including Handel Messiah, Mendelssohn Elijah and Mozart Requiem. We also perform challenging contemporary works: these have included Patterson Mass of the Sea and Magnificat, Tippett A Child of our Time and the Poulenc Gloria. In June 2012 we performed the premiere of our 50th Anniversary commission Sea and Stars by Julian Philips.

We hold three concerts a year (typically in November, March and June) as well as a Carol Concert in December. We also take part in local community events.

St Barnabas Church in Pitshanger Lane, Ealing is our most usual concert venue. We also give concerts every year in other concert halls and churches around London, including the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Cadogan Hall.

Jonathan Williams has been our Director of Music since 2008. Jonathan is also the Director of College Music at St Hilda's College, Oxford, Orchestration Tutor at the Faculty of Music, and has considerable experience as a conductor of choirs and orchestras.
