Leiden English Choir



The beat goes on!

Full of new energy, and with our new conductor Paula, we have embarked on an exciting new programme, in which the beat, the rhythm, takes pride of place.

The beat is the connecting thread that runs through the entire programme and links up the pieces from a wide range of countries: France, Hungary, Estonia, Finland, Belgium, Greece, and the U.S. The programme has both recognisable English connections (Chilcott, and Shakespeare Songs by Harris) and a South American component (Brazil, Argentina). There are no fewer than two premieres on the programme: ‘The making of the drum’ by Chilcott and ‘Fantasia for Choir and Marimba’ by Moeyaert. In short: a swinging and surprising programme that will be accompanied by a percussionist.

New members

We are delighted to announce the arrival of some new choir members. Because these include some new women, we are particularly looking for more male voices, tenors and basses, to balance out the voice groups. So why not come along on a Wednesday evening and sing with us – a warm welcome assured!
