LIC turns 5 Anniversary Concert- Gresham Centre- December 2018
London International Choir is 5 years old – a good reason to celebrate! Our showcase brought you the best of LIC: linguistic fun, crunchy chords, sky-high melodies, pumping bass-lines and cheesy key changes. From Classical to Bollywood, from Venezuela to the icy steppes of Russia, from the Middle Ages to the 21st Century, if it rocks, hums, raps, glides, elides or soars, we sing it.
Summer Breeze – Gresham Centre – June 2018
Mix hot Cuban sauce with cool Russian salt, add a dash of Indian spice, beat in some Mozart, rap it in a rosy kiss, and you’re halfway to enjoying our summery musical cocktail, the Summer Breeze. It did, indeed, make people feel fine!

Winter Rhapsody – Gresham Centre – December 2017
Last year’s winter concerts were rhapsodies of joy, celebration, reflection and sheer craziness – rhapsodies comprising music from A(rgentinian tango) to Z(ulu spirituals), taking in French jazz, American classical and Bollywood along the way. A musically Bohemian Christmas? You got it.
