Finchley Chamber Choir, recently described by Making Music as 'one of London's finest amateur classical choirs', was formed in 1973 and maintains close links with its sister organisation, Finchley Symphony Orchestra, both groups giving regular seasons at Trinity Church, North Finchley, including some joint concerts.
The choir consists of approximately thirty local singers of a calibre to provide its own soloists, interested in performing a wide range of music from the Middle Ages to the present day, including commissions and first performances. In 2014, the choir gave the world premieres of two works, one by Paul Patterson and another by Richard Bullen.
Following its successful 2011 appearance at the major Voices Now Choral Festival at the Roundhouse, FCC returned there in 2012 to give two performances, one of which was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3's The Choir. FCC appeared twice more on radio that year, on Classic FM and again on R3, having previously been selected for Pick of the Week on R4. The choir has received three PRS Awards for Enterprise.
