The City Of London Choir started life as the Kingsway Choral Society, founded by Donald Cashmore. In 1963, it was renamed the City of London Choir and its inaugural concert under that name took place at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Holborn. The CLC performs regularly with leading orchestras at some of London's principal concert venues. In recent seasons it has performed music of the 16th to 21st centuries with the English Chamber Orchestra, Florilegium, the Hanover Band, the London Mozart Players, the Philharmonia, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The choir ventures beyond the concert hall, and has made a number of recordings, some for release on CD and others for use in film and television soundtracks. Recent CLC events have benefited a number of charities including Voluntary Services Overseas, the Alzheimer's Society, the City of London Poppy Appeal, Prostate Research Campaign UK, St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, the Renewal of St Martin-in-the-Fields and Crisis.
