Organiser The Elgar Chorale of Worcester

Organiser of Rutter Requiem


The Elgar Chorale .........celebrates its 40th Anniversary year!


The Elgar Chorale is a mixed voice choir of up to 40 singers, many of whom are professional musicians.  In January 2015, Piers Maxim was appointed Director of Music, only the second person to hold this post after Dr Donald Hunt OBE, who founded the choir in 1980 and who sadly died in August 2018.  With Dr Hunt, the choir quickly became noted for its interpretations of music by Sir Edward Elgar.  Now established as one of the leading chamber choirs in the West Midlands, the choir continues its tradition of specialising in Elgar part-songs but inspired by the present director, is also becoming known for the variety of its performances.  Its repertoire ranges from medieval to the modern day, from unaccompanied to with a small orchestra.

The choir has often performed in some of Worcestershire’s most prestigious music festivals, most memorably at Three Choirs in Worcester and at the Bromsgrove Festival. We are planning a concert for The Three Choirs Festival in Worcester 2020.

In its 40 year history, the choir has also toured at home and abroad, singing in France, Germany, South Africa and most recently Devon in 2016.

As well as holding its own busy programme each season, the Elgar Chorale is often invited to perform on behalf of charities.  Over the years it has raised thousands of pounds for good causes. It is also asked to perform at weddings and on civic occasions.
