The London Humanist Choir promotes humanism in the arts and is a part of the British Humanist Association (BHA). We aim to provide a group for anyone who wishes to sing non-religious music in an inclusive community founded on humanist principles. As such, we don’t audition prospective members and we help new singers with training and sectional rehearsals.
The choir performs a wide-ranging repertoire of secular music covering classical pieces, humanist ceremony music, comedy pieces and contemporary pop. Our covers include Adele, The Flaming Lips, Toto and Tim Minchin. We also compose and commission our own music – here’s one about a cosmic teapot inspired by Bertrand Russell: https://kenrichman.bandcamp.com/track/teapot
The choir regularly takes part in musical events around London, as well as performing as part of BHA Events. We’ve performed a show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the last two years, became mice for Sara Pascoe’s Christmas Assembly at Battersea Arts Centre and recently sang in Kings Cross Station for the release of Ricky Gervais’ film ‘David Brent: Life on the Road’. The choir also runs an annual event featuring music, comedians and other acts every June called ‘One Life’.
