As part of our anniversary celebration, we have gathered a number of past and present choir members to tell their stories about the London Philharmonic Choir. Why did they choose to join the LPC? What was the audition like? Did ladies really wear hats to rehearsals? What's it like rehearsing and performing under the world's top conductors? And what really goes on during those foreign tours, of which the LPC has had so many in recent years? Get to know us by listening to our six podcasts especially produced for our 60th Anniversary season.
