The Walbrook Community Choir was established in September, offering the opportunity for those who live, work and visit the city to sing together in an informal group led by an experienced Director of Music, Tom Shorter. Rehearsals, on Wednesday lunchtimes take a break for the summer today and will resume on 18th September. Join us in the Autumn! No prior experience of singing in a choir is necessary nor do you need to read music or commit to coming each week to take part. The aim is to have fun!

n their first year the choir have sung in a World Premiere with Cantata Dramatica, at a special WW1 Centenary service and performed ‘This is The Record of John’ – a piece written by Tom Shorter – at Choral Evensong in June. Speaking to us from the pulpit, from where he sang the part of narrator, Neil Wiltshire, who works for an insurance company in Lombard Street, described the Community Choir as a highlight of his week – “it is a joy to be with a group of people who share a love of singing.”
