About the Parliament Choir

The founding of the choir in 2000 arose from a discussion between Lord Filkin and Simon Over (then Director of Music at St Margaret’s Westminster) about the difficulty of belonging to a choir when working in Parliament. The need to work during evenings made it very hard to attend rehearsals. The choir now holds weekly rehearsals in St Mary Undercroft (the chapel within the Palace of Westminster) during parliamentary sessions, which allows MPs and Peers to leave rehearsals at the sound of the division bell in order to vote.

Since its inception the choir has sung a rich and varied repertoire ranging from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio to songs from the shows, carol concerts to Verdi’s Requiem.

You can LISTEN to Classical Wandsworth with Julia Bright each Tuesday at 8pm online at WandsworthRadio.com and on the TuneIn app for smart phones, TV’s, tablets and SONOS.
