About the Choir
Since 1840, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir (RLPC) has been central to the life of Liverpool Philharmonic. Made up of a dedicated group of amateur singers from across the North West, the Choir’s achievements, repertoire and schedule are truly impressive. Concerts at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall alongside the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO) form the main part of the season, with the traditional annual performance of Handel’s Messiah and Liverpool Philharmonic’s Spirit of Christmas concerts scheduled alongside a wide variety of choral masterpieces, including Tippett’s A Child of our Time, Puccini’s Messe de Gloria and Mozart’s Requiem. In addition to this, the Choir performs at a range of venues beyond the city of Liverpool, including the Royal Albert Hall, as well as recording alongside some of the finest soloists, orchestras and conductors. With such a busy and varied schedule, no two seasons are the same for the RLPC.
Come and sing with us!
We’re looking to recruit new members ahead of the 2023-2024 concert season, which we know will be an exciting one under the baton of our new Director of Choirs and Singing, Matthew Hamilton.
This season, we’ll be performing Beethoven’s Mass in C with Matthew Halls making his Royal Liverpool Philharmonic debut, Brahms’ Schicksalied and Nanie conducted by Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan and Faure’s Requiem under the baton of Ben Glassberg, as well as singing Poulenc’s Gloria with Ariane Matiakh and Classic FM’s Hall of Fame concert with David Parry. Of course, we’ll also appear in Liverpool Philharmonic’s ever-popular Spirit of Christmas concerts and the traditional annual performance of Handel’s Messiah.
The Choir rehearse on Monday evenings during term time from 1830 (plus occasional workshop days), with additional rehearsals in the lead up to concerts.
