Founded in 1980 the Elgar Chorale is one of the leading chamber choirs in the West Midlands. We are a mixed voice choir of about 40 singers, many of us professional musicians, based in Worcester. We have a busy and varied programme of concerts taking place around Worcestershire and beyond. Our repertoire ranges from medieval to the modern day, from unaccompanied to with a small orchestra. The choir sings at many events to raise money for charity.
Our Next Events
The Mayor of Worcester’s 2018, Christmas Carol Concert
Come and join the Mayor of Worcester for his annual treat of seasonal carols!
The spectacular Assembly Room, with its Italianate ceiling and chandeliers, at the Guildhall, makes for an impressive setting for this festive event. With carols, readings and poems presented by The Elgar Chorale of Worcester there will be one FREE glass of wine (or a soft drink for sleigh drivers) and a mince pie during the interval. Together with audience participation in popular carols, it means there will be something for all!
All this is in aid of the Mayor’s Charities. This year these include St. Richard’s Hospice, Worcester Community Trust and Worcester Live.
A Baroque Christmas by Candlelight
With a small instrumental ensemble and in the atmospheric church surroundings, the Chorale will be presenting a programme of music from the era of Gabrieli and Bach. These two composers stand at the beginning and ending of the baroque period. You will hear the glorious O Magnum Mysterium and Hodie Christus natus est, by Gabrielli and some of the chorales and preludes for which Bach is so loved.
A free glass of Glühwein and a mince pie will be available during the interval to help the festival spirit! For further information about this concert please click here.
