The Choir


Please note that, due to the COVID-19 situation, all our rehearsals and concerts have been cancelled until further notice.

In the meantime listen to what we have been doing during lockdown by clicking here.

We have been recording the wonderful Psalm 100 by Heinrich Sch├╝tz.

This is written for two choirs. We have recorded Choir 1 and hope to add Choir 2 before the end of term (July).


Welcome to the Aeolian Singers. The choir, based in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, is a mixed voice, non-audition choir with currently about 40 members.

We have a very wide repertoire, ranging from Renaissance to contemporary music, and have given several first performances. We also have a tradition of community and youth involvement.

The choir was established in 1963, and the President of the Aeolian Singers, until his death in 2017, was Peter Skellern.

We usually have 3 concerts a year. Repertoire is both classical and modern. Concert venues are usually in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, where we can be accompanied by a variety of instruments including piano, organ, harp or small orchestra. Occasionally we join forces with other choirs, for example The Hardynge Choir of Harpenden, to allow us to perform larger scale works.

We also undertake other performances such as the Age UK Concert and singing Christmas carols in the town. We have had exchange visits with choirs in France and Germany.

The Music Director is Stephen Jones.
