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
Our conductor, Justin Harmer, joined Medici Choir as an accompanist and is an accomplished bass-baritone, musician, teacher and composer. We perform classic choral works and contemporary pieces (see our concert history to look at our varied repertoire, including new works by our former Musical Director John Baird).
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.
We are regularly invited to sing at private commercial events and weddings - and have taken part in festivals in Paris and Prague. The choir most recently sang in Alaró in Mallorca, in May 2015 and are going again in May 2019.
Spring term starts on Thursday 3 January. Please
contact us if you would like more information on joining the choir.
