About the Choir
Barclays House Choir was founded in 1976, with ten founder members who all worked for the bank. Under the direction of James Grocott, who would be Musical Director for some 35 years, the choirâ€™s membership grew steadily and was extended to others outside of the bank who wanted to sing in a friendly & relaxed atmosphere. Today the choir is a combined workplace & community choir open to all, having performed many major works and worked with soloists including Kate Royal, Gareth Malone and cellist Natalie Clein, all of whom are now in great international demand. The choir continues to receive generous financial support from Barclays PLC, to whom we are immensely grateful.
We are always keen to hear from potential new members. We pride ourselves on running a happy and friendly choir, so we look forward to be able to welcome you. Further information about joining the choir is available on our website.
