We are extremely busy preparing for what is likely our busiest season ever! Our Christmas concert is going to be, as always, 2 very special evenings of music – on Friday 20 December in Noordwijk (Maria ter Zeekerk) and on Saturday 21 December in Leiden (Marekerk). But there is a lot more coming as well!
Before our Christmas concerts, we will join the Toonkunst Orkest Leiden and 3 other choirs to form a group of more than 100 voices for the world premier of an original work – The Voyage to Creation by Jeppe Moulijn (Sunday December 1 – Stadsgehoorzaal Leiden and Saturday 7 December – MCO Hilversum).
To top off the season we will be singing in the Christmas Eve services in the breathtaking Pieterskerk in Leiden (Tuesday December 24). Every year more than 2.000 guests attend the services, so plan early to ensure that you get a seat.
Leiden English Choir is an international amateur choir of 45 enthusiastic singers who perform choral music from all over the world and from many different time periods. The choir began in 1973 in the English faculty at Leiden University (hence the name Leiden English Choir).
