Our proud association with University College School
The Chorus has a very close link with UCS. The choir was originally founded by the school and many of our original members were parents of children at the school.
We regularly involve members of the student body in our concerts: our Summer concerts in 2014 and 2017 involved soloists from the school and student musicians from the school regularly play in the orchestra for our Autumn and Spring concerts.
We are very grateful to UCS for their generous and continuing support of the choir.
Raising money for Marie Curie
The Chorus has chosen the Marie Curie Hospice Hampstead as our charity partner. Marie Curie provides care and support for those with terminal illnesses and their families. In the last three years, we have raised over £10,000 to support the charity’s work, donating proceeds from an annual Come and Sing event and regular collections at our concerts. Most recently in June 2017, we presented Marie Curie with a cheque for £1,600.
All proceeds from our Come and Sing event on 27 January 2018 will go to Marie Curie.
