Choir history

The North Camden Chorus was formed around 1978 to allow parents and students of William Ellis and Parliament Hill Schools to perform major choral works. We’re less connected with the schools these days and don’t have many school-age members, but local school students still perform solos in our concerts.

The choir has benefitted from a sudden surge of interest in choral singing (TV programmes may have helped) and we typically have 150 members signed up for our autumn and spring terms. We have an age range from under twenty to over seventy (we’re pleased to have many more younger singers than a couple of years ago).

Previous conductors have included Colin Durrant, John Madden and (for many years) Neil Bowman. Soloists have included Andrew Carwood, Mark Wilde and Michael Palin!
