Hackney Choral is led by St Paul’s Cathedral, in association with St Paul’s West Hackney. In 2014, the Hackney Children’s Choir was founded. This work is a significant part of the Cathedral’s mission, and the project’s growth—to include holiday courses and a new senior choir—reflect this.
Hackney Choral is part of the Cathedral’s music outreach, which shares the astonishing tradition of choral and organ music at St Paul’s dating over 900 years. The Cathedral is committed to supporting London’s young people.
We work closely with the Hackney Music Service, which provides inspirational opportunities to schools, children and young people for lifelong learning through high quality, motivational, sustained and progressive musical experiences, and through structured and creative music-making.
St Paul’s West Hackney is our home, and we are one of many projects based at the church. St Paul’s extends a hand of welcome, friendship and support to people from all walks of life across Hackney.
We are grateful for the tremendous support of a number of partners who make this work possible.
