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 Chamber Orchestra, both groups giving regular seasons at Trinity Church, North Finchley, including some joint concerts. It has a wide and varied repertoire of all styles and from all periods from the 13th century to the present day, including numerous commissions and first performances.
The choir consists of approximately thirty local singers of a calibre to provide its own soloists and has sung throughout London, including at the Royal Festival Hall and Roundhouse, as well as elsewhere in Britain, in Germany and in the Czech Republic. The choir has three times received an Award for Choral Enterprise from the Performing Rights Society and twice participated in the Adopt-a-Composer scheme, most recently in July 2011 when the premiere was recorded for radio broadcast by the BBC.
