About us

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 the most noble of causes.

We continue to support CLIC Sargent, a charity caring for children and young people with cancer and their families – in hospital and in the community – raising funds for them at our annual Christmas concert in Birmingham’s Town Hall.

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.
