Welcome To The London Symphony Chorus – London’s Choir of First Choice

The London Symphony Chorus is now widely regarded as London’s choir of first choice under Simon Halsey’s leadership. Our continuing close partnership with the London Symphony Orchestra has also been strengthened by his appointment both as LSC Chorus Director and Choral Director of the LSO, reflecting the importance the Orchestra places on future choral activity.

Since Simon’s appointment, notable highlights have included performances and recordings of Rachmaninov’s Vespers, under his baton, Peter Maxwell Davies’s Symphony No.10 under Antonio Pappano and Schumann’s oratorio Das Paradies und Die Peri under the LSO’s principal conductor-elect Simon Rattle.

We celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2016, which will be marked by performances of Haydn’s The Seasons under Simon Rattle, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius under Mark Elder and Schumann’s Faust Szenen under Daniel Harding, all performed with the LSO. Simon Rattle returns to the podium later in the year with the premiere performance of Peter Maxwell Davies’s new opera The Hogboon. In October the choir will perform Verdi’s Requiem with the LSO under Gianandrea Noseda both in London and New York.

Our varied and exciting 2016-17 season with the LSO includes John Adams’s El Nino conducted by the composer himself, Ligeti’s opera Le Grand Macabre, conducted by Simon Rattle and semi-staged by Peter Sellars following on from the success of Debussy’s Pelleas et Mellisande in January 2016, and Bruckner’s Te Deum conducted by Bernard Haitink.
