About us

Please see our Concerts page for next concert and our News page for what else we’ve been up to recently.

The Midlands Hospitals’ Choir is a large, mixed voice choir based in Birmingham, in the heart of the UK. Formed in 1981 in memory of Sir Malcolm Sargent and the charity set up in his name, the choir originally drew its members from local hospitals. We still have a large contingent from the medical and associated professions but nowadays the choir is open to anyone with a passion for singing (no auditions required!) and a desire to help us fund-raise for charitable causes.

For many years we donated the proceeds of our concerts to CLIC Sargent, a charity caring for children and young people with cancer and their families, raising funds for them at our annual Christmas concert in Birmingham’s Town Hall. From 2021 onwards, we will also be supporting Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

We also perform a Spring/Summer concert which usually takes place in one of Birmingham’s historical and beautiful churches, as well as combining with other local and national choirs throughout the year for a number of other unique and exciting projects.
