Nobody could have guessed that, when the breezy show tune My Favourite Things snuck into Rogers and Hammerstein’s Tyrolean tribute to the von Trapps, that – of all the songs in The Sound of Music – it would become the most iconic.

Covered by artists as diverse as John Coltrane, Kenny Rogers, Carole King, Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross, The Supremes and Kiri Te Kanawa, My Favourite Things enjoys an enduring popularity with a huge variety of audiences. The song provides the springboard for a special celebration by CML of choir members’ personal favourites from recent concerts, as well as some solo surprises.

In the atmospheric setting of the Brunel Museum’s impressive Grand Entrance Hall, the choir will present music by Elgar, Tippett, Lauridsen, Tavener, Philip Glass, Irving Berlin, Schubert, Rheinberger and Whitacre, in a lively and eclectic programme designed to show Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir at its best, performing music its singers love.

Rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the capital’s most accomplished choral ensembles, Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir will be conducted by the group’s musical director Greg Morris.
