The Esterhazy Singers mark the 50th Anniversary of the First Moon Landing.
On 16 July 1969, Apollo 11 launched to become the first spaceflight to land two people on the Moon. The Esterhazy Singers commemorate the 50th anniversary with an exciting and varied programme of choral music. Featuring works ancient and modern, the programme reflects composers’ preoccupations and obsessions with the heavens, the stars and the moon throughout the ages.
Repertoire includes Monteverdi - Ave Maris Stella, Harris - Faire is the Heaven, East - Hence, stars, Esenvalds - Stars, and Howard’s Fly me to the Moon.

The Esterhazy Singers is an amateur choir of about 50 people that aims at professional standards. We also support music students by providing them bursaries to sing with us and learn to lead an experienced choir. Based in the City of London at St Magnus the Martyr Church, the choir is named after Haydn’s patrons, the Princes Nicholas and Paul Anton Esterhazy. The music of Haydn is central to the choir’s repertoire but it also tackles a wide range of styles, from Renaissance polyphony to ambitious contemporary choral music.The choir welcomes new members in all voice parts. We are a friendly and sociable group who aim for a balanced membership of about 50 singers. While we are an amateur choir who love singing as a leisure activity, we rehearse and perform to high standards.
