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 Event

Autumn Serenade – An evening of music and reading

On Saturday 6th October 2018, The Elgar Chorale of Worcester will be giving a concert of music and readings in St Andrew’s Church Ombersley at 7.30pm.

The Elgar Chorale will perform a concert of music and readings.   We will be celebrating the season of Autumn and Remembrance and to raise funds for the church. This concert is particularly poignant because it will be the first concert by The Elgar Chorale of Worcester, since the death of Dr Donald Hunt.  Dr Hunt, was the founder (as The Donald Hunt Singers) and Director of Music of the Chorale for thirty five years.  For a short biography of Dr Hunt please click here.  Songs and anthems composed by Edward Elgar and Hubert Parry will feature. We will also perform some American Spirituals arranged by Piers Maxim.  Piers succeeded Dr Hunt as Director of Music of the Elgar Chorale in 2015.
