Barclays House Choir Barclays House Choir, originally named Barclays House Sports and Social Club Musical Society, was founded following the completion of the new Head Office of Barclays International in Poole, Dorset. The first rehearsal was held on 5 October 1976, when ten singers met to rehearse for a planned Christmas Concert. Numbers grew and 21 finally took part in the concert held in Barclays House. Since that time membership has widened and now consists of about 70 members drawn from many occupations. Under the musical direction of James Grocott, who has led the choir for the last 29 years, the group has performed many of the major choral works including Handel's Messiah, Haydn's Creation, Vivaldi's Gloria and Brahms's Requiem, as well as more modern compositions such as Rutter's Magnificat. Most of the choir's concerts also involve the 38 strong St Peter's Orchestra, whose support is always very much appreciated. The choir receives the financial support of the Barclays Bank Arts Council, and all concerts are given with their support. The choi r wi l lbe si ngi ng i n Sout hwar k Cat hedr alat t he bank ’ s Car olSer v i ce on Monday , 18th December at midday. This event is open to all. If you wish to discuss any aspect relating to the choir, please speak to James Grocott (Musical Director) or Evelyn Wade (Chairman).
