BBC Symphony Chorus

Band, *1928 GB
Classical

The BBC Symphony Chorus is a British amateur chorus based in London. It is the dedicated chorus for the BBC Symphony Orchestra, though it performs with other national and international orchestras.In its early years, the BBC worked on developing its choral output, founding the BBC Wireless Chorus, a professional chamber choir of 16, to supply the smaller scale needs. For bigger choral works, the BBC turned to outside organisations, which performed either under their own name, or under the title of "The National Chorus." Participating choruses included the Civil Service Choir, the Lloyds Choir, and the Railway Clearing House Men's Voice Choir, which would perform en-masse together with the Wireless Chorus.
