London auditioned amateur chamber choir with varied repertoire
Welcome to the website of Ad Libitum Chamber Choir
Formed in 2005, Ad Libitum is an auditioned amateur choir of about 25 voices performing in central London. We perform a varied repertoire of both sacred and secular music from the sixteenth century to the present day. In 2012 we performed our first commissioned work by UK composer Russell Hepplewhite. The choir also undertakes overseas tours, having recently made festival appearances in France and Guernsey.
Summer 2017 Concert at St Mary le Bow – Thursday 1st June – 7.30pm
Our summer concert this year features the Mozart Requiem, one of the milestones of the choral repertoire, in a rather unusual and under-performed arrangement for chorus and piano duet by the Austrian composer, Carl Czerny. Along a similar theme, the first half of the concert presents a number of reflective European works by Rheinberger and Bruckner in addition to a celestial journey for the soul in the form of Brahms’s Song of Destiny.
Tickets are available to buy on the door or in advance from Eventbrite.
Note that our ticket prices are now £15 for adults, and £12 for students, and the cost of your interval refreshments are included.
We are always interested in hearing from experienced choral singers. We currently have openings for two basses. If you’d like to find out more about joining us, get in touch.
