The Amici Chamber
Choir is based in the Harrow area of northwest London, UK. Around 35 experienced and enthusiastic amateur singers form one
of the area's leading chamber choirs. Rehearsals are in Pinner on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. There are at least three
concerts a year, including one in a prestigious Central London venue such as St James's Piccadilly. Most other concerts
are in the Harrow area.
The choir performs a challenging and varied repertoire of choral music and seeks to
continually improve its tradition of excellence. The repertoire covers both sacred and secular works, from Renaissance
church music and madrigals to music of the present day.
The choir gave the first British performance of CPE Bach’s St Markus Passion
at St James’ Church, Piccadilly in March 1988 and the first London performances of JS Bach’s St Mark Passion
in St John's, Smith Square in February 1989 and of Gretchaninov's Liturgia Domestica in St James's, Piccadilly
in December 1999.
In June 2009, the choir gave the first performance of Blundering Nature by Noah Wilke
in Kenton Methodist Church. And in May 2010, 20 members of the choir sang in a performance of Mahler's 2nd Symphony:
The Resurrection, with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Marin Alsop - see Reviews.
