Esterhazy Singers 2018

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. Margaret Pattens 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.

The Esterhazy Singers are always on the lookout for enthusiastic choristers to join us. We are an amateur choir that maintains a high musical standard and put on public performances 4 or 5 times each year. We rehearse Tuesday evenings at 19:00 to 21:30 at St. Margaret Pattens Church in the City near Monument tube station. If you're a singer who is looking to sing some challenging repertoire in a fun social environment then we want you! Please send an email to to register your interest.

We are an auditioned choir, so please prepare a short piece that showcases your voice that you can sing for our Musical Director after your first rehearsal. You will be asked to do some sight singing and a few vocal exercises to help us to place your voice. For more detailed information please take a look at our Membership Guide at the link below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Since 2014, the Esterhazy Singers has offered a scholarship scheme to young singers training to become professional musicians. A scholarship gives singers a chance to practice with us as soloists and occasionally to take part of a rehearsal as a conductor.

So far the scholarships have been funded by donations from choir members. We are hoping to expand from 2 to 4 bursaries a year in each of the SATB voices. Please support our activities by donating (by mail to the chairman) and by attending our concerts.

businesscardWe are looking to raise additional funds to allow us to put on more concerts with orchestral accompaniment, to commission new works from emerging composers, to reach out to local communities with free performances and educational work and occasionally to perform outside London. Sponsorship from companies and individuals will help us to achieve these ambitions and associate your name or brand with our innovations.

In return for your sponsorship, we can offer an attractive schedule of benefits. These would be individually tailored to your donation and wishes but could include acknowledgement in all publicity, complimentary advertising space in our programmes and on tickets, links from the choir’s website, complimentary tickets, complimentary CDs, and even the possibility of a private performance to staff, families and clients (subject to the choir’s existing commitments).
