About Medici Choir


Medici Choir was established in 1951 to perform during the Festival of Britain. Back then we were known as the 'United Hospitals Festival Choir', and indeed most of the choir members at the time had some kind of connection with hospitals in central London.

Our present conductor, John Baird, joined Medici Choir as an accompanist. As well as guiding us through the classic choral works and contemporary pieces (see our concert history to look at our varied repertoire), John also composes his own choral works, which the choir works hard at to make successful premiere performances.

Today the choir is a large and friendly group of over sixty voices, young and old. In addition to our three concerts every year, we also take part in a Christmas carol service at St. Mary Magdalene's Church in Wandsworth Common.

Also, we've recently been invited to sing at private commercial events and weddings - as well as festivals abroad in Paris and Prague. The choir most recently sang in Alaró in Mallorca, in May 2015.

Summer term starts on Thursday 12 April. Please contact us if you would like more information on joining the choir.

Medici Choir is a Registered Charity no. 1014229
