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
As Torrents in Summer – Words and Music for a Summer’s Afternoon
A Concert on Sunday afternoon, 8th July, at 3.30pm, with The Elgar Chorale in St. James Church, Chipping Campden.
In aid of two local charities, Campden Edge and Campden Home Nursing together with The Elgar Chorale the concert will consist of music from the 19th and 20th centuries, with readings from the same period.
Ranging from Parry to Copland and verse from Lewis Carroll to Matt Harvey, there is something for everyone. Something old and something new, (even something blue!). There will be different genres, such as spirituals and English choral music from the last 150 years. From Shakespearean songs set to music by Hubert Parry to American spirituals handed down through the generations, . There be some old favourites such and ‘Steal Away’ and ‘Go down Moses’. The music will be interspersed with readings both light and slightly more thought provoking by writers such as Lewis Carroll and Walt Whitman. For more information please click here
