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.
