Christmas at Versailles
A Choral Festive Celebration
Saturday 10 December 2016, 7.30pm - St Clement Danes on the Strand, London
We hope you are able to join us this Christmas for a spell-binding evening of festive music with a French twist. Our Winter concert in the beautiful Wren church St Clement Danes will feature music from across the centuries, including a special performance with the baroque orchestra Meridian Sinfonia, of Charpentier’s ethereal Christmas mass “Messe de Minuit pour Noël" as well as music from Daquin, Howells and Vaughan-Williams.
London's LGBT+ semi-professional chamber choir
The Fourth Choir is London's LGBT+ chamber choir for advanced singers. We focus on performing great choral works from early music to contemporary choral masterpieces. The choir was formed in September 2013, and our aim from the outset has been to represent the LGBT+ community on London's world-class classical music scene.
Our Artistic Director, Dominic Peckham, is one of the UK's leading choral conductors and works with both professional groups, such as the English National Opera chorus, and educational groups such as the National Youth Choir. Our Associate Music Director is Andrea Brown, former Director of Music at Morley College.
The Choir is a group of experienced amateurs, choral scholars, academy-trained musicians and music professionals. Our members are not all LGBT+, but we assume that anyone who works with us celebrates diversity and equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered communities. If that sounds like you and you're prepared to put in the amount of time required, we'd love to hear from you!

What the critics say...
"The Fourth Choir is an audaciously ambitious ensemble… who are not especially well-known as yet. But being sharp, smart and resourceful, they deserve to be."
Michael White, Music Correspondent for The Telegraph and New York Times
"The harmonies were breathtaking. Exquisite. My bones were resonating. The choir were very good indeed... they are quickly going from strength to strength under the leadership of Dominic Peckham."
Matthew James Hunt, author of I am not Gog
