We are a large, London-based choir that performs a wide range of classic choral and contemporary works in and around London, the UK and abroad.
Medici Choir was established in 1951 to perform during the Festival of Britain. Then it was known as ‘The United Hospitals Festival Choir’, and most of the choir members at the time had some connection with hospitals in central London.
Today the choir is a friendly and diverse group with members from many different professions and walks of life and rehearses on Thursday evenings in Covent Garden.
As well as three regular London concerts a year, the choir takes part annually in a Christmas carol service, sings at private commercial events and weddings, and at festivals abroad. Medici Choir has performed in Prague, Berlin, Paris, Venice and Rome, the Wolfgangsee region of Austria, and Mallorca. The choir regularly performs with the Brandenburg Sinfonia.
Our Musical Director is David Gostick and our rehearsal pianist is Phoebe Yu. We are a non-audition choir and welcome new singers with a good standard of sight singing.
