Welcome to the German Choir of London!

Are you looking for a choir that rehearses and performs in German?

Would you like to experience the choral masterworks of Bach, Brahms and Mendelssohn sung in the original?

Perhaps you’re interested in exploring the unique vocal textures of Schütz, or the late Romantic sound world of Bruckner, Reger and Rheinberger?

And in engaging with new music, contemporary commissions, cross-cultural collaborations and much more?

The German Choir of London is an established choir which blends choral tradition with musical innovation and brings all styles of music to life in its performances in London, the rest of the UK and beyond. We are a diverse, international group of singers with a shared passion for music and a particular interest in German language and culture.
