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.

Concert highlights:

Christopher Tin, Arr. Marius Imholz- Baba Yetu
Black Eyed Peas- Where is the Love
Thomas Hewitt Jones- Shenandoah
Eric Maschwitz & Manning Sherwin-A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square
