City Chorus, Letchworth Community Choir



City Chorus will be representing the community in Normandy from July 04th to July 7th commemorating the 100th anniversary of the out break of World War 1, and the 70th anniversary of the D Day Landings.  We will be holding a service of remembrance at the British War Graves, where a wreath will be presented in honour of those whose lives were lost for our freedom.  More information will be posted early 2014, with details of pre tour concerts and War presentations from local veterans from Letchworth.


We are a thriving community based choir in Letchworth Garden City, about 35 miles north of London.  We comprise over 80 members of varying ages, backgrounds and abilities, united by one common passion: We love to sing!

At City Chorus we sing a wide range of music, covering popular, classical, show and religious/traditional.  There’s something for everyone, and there are openings for budding soloists too.

We were founded in 2010 with the mission statement “For the community, by the community”. Contributing to our local community is hugely important to us, and we can be regularly seen in Letchworth and the surrounding towns and villages, singing for events and local charities (most notably, Garden House Hospice, our affiliated charity).


2012-2013 City Chorus donated £4000 to the Garden House Hospice, Letchworth.

In addition to these appearances, we hold two major concerts every year, one in the summer and one at Christmas.  Look out on this website for more information about these, and to buy tickets.

We meet every Wednesday evening to rehearse and we also hold additional section practice sessions each week for those who are able to attend.

To join City Chorus, all you need is a passion for music and a sense of humour.  There are no auditions to get in, nor do you have to read music. The Chorus (led by Tony and Natalie) will help you find your feet very quickly!

So if you want to sing, come along and give us a try. If you don’t like it, fair enough, at least you’ll have tried something new!  If you do stay, you will be given help and encouragement and you will join a band of amazing people. Many of our choristers couldn’t read music or hadn’t sung since school, but that has not deterred them from becoming accomplished singers. Best of all, we can promise to have you smiling at the end of an evening no matter what sort of day you’ve had.

We look forward to meeting you.
