We are a classical choir based around Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry / Londonderry, in the North West of Northern Ireland, with members from both sides of the border and all communities. Proud of our founding and enduring association with Altnagelvin Hospital, the first general hospital to be built in the UK following the foundation of the NHS, we perform two main fundraising concerts per year to support local and national charities which have a focus on health and / or social well-being.
We sing in four parts and our ever-growing repertoire includes choral music from the last five centuries. While we take the music seriously, we enjoy the social and shared aspect of our work together. Whatever your voice (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass), if you are interested in exploring what we do, Contact Us. We can also be found on Facebook , Twitter and Instagram.
As well as our two main concerts, we also provide a number of community service events. We sing at the Altnagelvin Hospital ICU Memorial Service in November each year and sing carols around the wards after our main Christmas concert. For the last 3 years we have held a Carol Service with 9 Lessons in local churches for hospital staff, their friends and families and the local community.
Membership is open and is not confined to staff members of the Hospital or Western Health & Social Care Trust – Join Us. We are actively recruiting for the new Autumn/ Winter season 2019!
