The Choir

ďI can honestly say that I have never heard such a fine performance from any choir in London. an unforgettable eveningĒ

Welcome to Petros Singers, one of Londonís leading amateur chamber choirs. We give three or four concerts each year, mainly in West London but also regularly in major venues in Central London and sometimes further afield.

We perform a wide variety of music, placing particular emphasis on vibrant and communicative singing. Repertoire is often idiosyncratic, eschewing the typical canonical works to shine a light on forgotten masterpieces and rare choral treasures. We collaborate with top-class soloists and instrumentalists including Dame Emma Kirkby, London Mozart Players > and The Marian Consort >

The choir has around 40 auditioned singers and we take great pleasure in singing beautiful music to a high standard. Voice training is a regular feature of rehearsals, both from our musical director, Richard Bannan, and from invited guest conductors.

We organise regular open singing workshops led by renowned conductors or voice coaches. We also offer individual singing lessons with the professional tenor, Peter Davoren. Members can book lessons on an occasional basis, and these are held during rehearsals in a separate room adjacent to our main rehearsal space.

We rehearse every Tuesday evening during term time from 8:00 to 9:45pm in St Peterís Church, Black Lion Lane, on the borders of Hammersmith and Chiswick (Stamford Brook or Ravenscourt Park tubes).

The choir was founded in 1983 as St Peterís Singers, having emerged from members of the eponymous church choir looking to perform a wider repertoire. Previous conductors are Christopher Bracewell, Mark Lowther, Michael Emery (Senior Producer of the BBC Singers), and Duncan Aspden. As we had long-since spread our wings from our church base and become a purely concert choir, in 2011 our name was changed to Petros Singers.
