The London Welsh Chorale has rehearsed and performed in central London and around the globe since 1983. Members hail from a range of professions and backgrounds, and the repertoire spans from the Renaissance to the modern. The Chorale is committed to keeping Welsh music alive in London, and has supported many young professional singers and orchestral players in our professional concerts. New members are always welcome! Musical Director: Edward-Rhys Harry, Accompanist: Jenny Trew Have a look around, see and hear what we do, and get in touch if you would like to join us!
Our Christmas offering this year is a wonderful blend of the old and new.
For the old we have Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, c. 1740 and Haydn's Te Deum for Marie Therese of 1799; both are well know in the choral repertoire. For the new we have Ola Gjeilo's Winter Songs. New arrangements of old carols as well as some original compositions.
We are very sorry to have to pass on the sad news that Kenneth Bowen has died.
Kenneth was our Musical Director for 25 years from 1983 to 2008. It's impossible to put into words how much the Chorale owes to Kenneth, so we won't try to do so here. The best we can do is to say that Ken loved the Chorale and that the Chorale loved Ken.
