City of London Festival Office Choirs Performance 2015

Local office choirs have the chance to perform in the Guildhall Great Hall 2014 06 23 London Stock Exchange 21

We embrace the creative energies of local communities through the City of London Festival’s rich Learning & Participation Programme. In 2014, we launched our ‘Choral Capital’ initiative, celebrating and developing the rich choral traditions and talents of the City of London. In 2015 we will be offering selected office choirs the chance to take part in a performance at the lavish Guildhall Great Hall.

On Thursday 9 July 2015, we will present a concert performance of a multi-award-winning musical in the magnificent Guildhall Great Hall in the City of London, using a 25-piece band, west end stars in the soloist roles and a celebrity narrator as the 'Voice of the Book'. A chorus of singers will be created from office choirs. The musical performed by the office choirs will be the ultimate show to perform in the heart of the City, at the stunning Guildhall.
