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.

Response to COVID19 pandemic
March 17th 2020
The Elgar Chorale of Worcester regret that we have had to cancel our concert on 28th March 2020 ‘Sweet Voice of Spring’ due to the COVID19 pandemic.
We are taking this action in line with the Government’s advice together with the venue. Our first concerns are for the health and safety of our audience, Friends and performers.
If you have bought a ticket for this concert please, in the first instance, contact the vendor of your ticket, who should be able to either refund your monies or give you further advice.
Further information will be given on this site as and when it becomes available, including any arrangements for future events.
At the moment we are continuing with the planning of our concert on 30th May 2020, at The Firs in conjunction with the Elgar Festival 2020 and our big concert at Pershore Abbey on 26th July 2020 in conjunction with Three Choirs Festival. Both of these concerts are dependent on the relevant Festival organisations and we will have to follow their lead. However, as you will realise, the advice and events are changing daily if not by the hour and we will endeavour to keep you updated on this website.
Hope you are all keeping well and look forward to seeing you at our concerts in the hopefully not too distant future.
