London Symphony Chorus

The London Symphony Chorus was formed in 1966 to complement the work of the London Symphony Orchestra. The partnership between the LSC and LSO was developed and strengthened in 2012 with the joint appointment of Simon Halsey as Chorus Director of the LSC and Choral Director for the LSO. The LSC has partnered other major UK and international orchestras including the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic orchestras, Boston Symphony Orchestra and the European Union Youth Orchestra. Along with regular appearances at the major London venues, the LSC tours extensively throughout Europe and has visited North America, Israel, Australia, and the Far East.

The chorus has recorded widely, with releases including Britten’s War Requiem with Gianandrea Noseda, Haydn’s The Seasons, Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast and Verdi’s Otello, and the world premiere issue of MacMillan’s St John Passion. The chorus also partners the LSO on Gergiev’s recordings of Mahler’s Symphonies Nos 2, 3 and 8, while the men of the chorus took part in the recent Gramophone Award-winning recording of Götterdämmerung with the Hallé under Sir Mark Elder.

The chorus has also commissioned new works from composers such as Sir John Tavener, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Michael Berkeley and Jonathan Dove, and took part in the world premiere of James MacMillan’s St John Passion with the LSO and Sir Colin Davis in 2008, and in the second London performance in February 2010.
