If you’d like to be part of all this find out how to join the choir

Leicester Philharmonic Choir (the 'Phil') was founded in 1886 and is the largest choir in Leicestershire. With over 100 members it is considered one of the foremost choirs in the UK. Our Patron, Karl Jenkins has said of the choir: "They are an excellent choir, absolutely first class, and it's always a pleasure to be involved with them". Karl has conducted us on several occasions in Midlands première performances of his own works, including two performances of The Armed Man. Because of our excellent reputation we have been invited to perform with the Philharmonia Orchestra and the London Mozart Players on several occasions. Other top- quality orchestras and famous conductors return frequently as guests of the choir. In March 2014 eighty members joined a choir of 400 in the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the 70th birthday of our Artistic Director with a performance of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius
