Nottingham Hospitals Choir Home

Registered charity No. 1158462

 

Welcome to the website of the Nottingham Hospitals Choir.

We are a friendly group of about forty singers, who normally rehearse each week during school terms at Queen’s Medical Centre. We are led by Nick Milburn our Musical Director and accompanist Chris Ebbern.  Many of the choir have worked in the NHS in various capacities, but this is not a requirement of membership.

We perform music in many styles and give four concerts each year. The programme for the Easter Concert is mostly classical music, by contrast in the summer and early autumn we perform arrangements of popular music, including numbers from films and musicals. The Christmas Concert consists of carols and other seasonal music. The choir sings at other church services and hospital events; such as the NHS Mass at St Barnabas Cathedral, BBC Radio Nottingham  Carol Service and the City of Nottingham Festival of Remembrance.  

Over the last 50 years we have raised over £200 000 for charity. In recent years we have been collecting for the Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s  i-MRI appeal. The Choir had its Golden Jubilee in 2020, but sadly we were not able to hold any of our scheduled events. We are looking forward to having something to celebrate soon.

Rehearsals will start again on 5th May and continue on Thursday evenings at 7pm at:

Beeston Methodist Church, Chilwell Road, Nottingham NG9 1EH.

There is car parking at the Church and Chilwell Road Tram Stop is just a few yards away from the Church.  We will need to ask members for a small cash donation to cover the hire cost of the Church. We will put a box out at rehearsal and let you know the amount on the night.

Our next concert will be on Saturday 9th July at St Leonard's Church Wollaton, when we will perform a programme of popular music including songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

A message from the President

Dr. Keith Girling is the Medical Director of the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.  He became President of the Nottingham Hospitals Choir in 2019 and says:

'The Hospitals Choir has been part of the life of the Nottingham Hospitals for 50 years and I count it a huge privilege to be the President at this particular time. The choir performs a number of very professional contributions through the year at a wide selection of events and the members clearly enjoy what they do immensely and their commitment, some for over 40 years, is testament to how much this has come to mean to them. If you enjoy singing then I would encourage you to consider joining and if you, like me, are better placed to enjoy the music presented then please do come along and support the events that are described on this website. In doing so, you will not only encourage the choir but also will be supporting key charitable projects through the Nottingham Hospitals.'
 

Despite his busy workload keeping the hospitals running, Dr Girling has kept in touch with the choir. He has sent us this message:

'I hope that all the choir members are staying safe through this time'.
