This innovative spirit has been evidenced in the Choir’s unique and diverse manner of programming, a repertoire that ranges from Bach to Broadway, world folk music to contemporary church music, and oratorio to opera.  The Choir seeks to engage audiences not only through an eclectic repertoire, but also through emotional, heart-felt music making.  David Hobson began directorship of the Centenary College Choir in the fall of 2007, becoming only the fourth conductor in the choir’s 73 year history and the second to hold the prestigious A.C. Cheesy Voran Chair.  Continuing the rich legacy established by his predecessors, Hobson has conducted the Choir in an average of 40 or more annual performances around the world.

Our association with this church dates back to the choir’s formation, in December 2004, when Richard Thomas was invited to assemble a choir for the Leprosy Mission’s annual carol service. There were 13 singers at that first event – hence Tredici. Over the past 12 years the choir's membership has evolved into the current group of around 35, all of whom are experienced singers drawn from a variety of leading London choirs including the Philharmonia Chorus, the BBC Symphony Chorus and the London Symphony Chorus. Admission free, suggested donation £8     _____________________________________________________________________ Friday 7th July  7:00pm City Lit Choirs Director: Richard Hartley Wilson Accompanist: Gabriel Keen Summer Concert City Lit’s choirs perform a selection of music for summer featuring movements from Vivaldi’s famous Gloria, a selection of a cappella folk songs, and ending with a medley of favourites by Ethel Merman.
