Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir

"The real star of the show turned out to be the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir"
Liverpool Echo

“The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir totally stole the show, well surpassing the incredibly high standards which they already regularly attain”
Arts Desk

Since 1840, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir (RLPC) has been central to the life of Liverpool Philharmonic. 

Made up of amateur singers from across the North West and led by acclaimed Chorus Master Ian Tracey, the Choir’s achievements, repertoire and schedule are truly impressive. Whether they’re taking on choral masterpieces such as Orff’s Carmina Burana and Verdi’s Requiem, featuring in Liverpool Philharmonic’s festive extravaganza Spirit of Christmas, performing in iconic concert venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, singing alongside some of the world’s finest conductors, orchestras and soloists, touring abroad or appearing on CD recordings, no two seasons with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir are the same.

Come and sing with us!

We’re looking to recruit new members ahead of the 2022/23 concert season – and we know it’ll be a special one.

This year, we’ll be performing Puccini’s Messe di Gloria alongside Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan and Bach’s St Matthew Passion under the baton of Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Manze, as well as singing Mozart’s Requiem and Tippett’s Child of Our Time. 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 (plus occasional workshop days), with additional rehearsals in the lead up to concerts.
