Mosaic Choir

mosaic

Mosaic Choir enjoys both Orthodox liturgical music from different traditions and folk music from many lands. The choir is a mosaic of Orthodox people in the UK, with people from several nationalities and backgrounds. We have been singing together for many years now, originally getting together through the Youth Festival, but now covering an even wider group.

We perform across the UK and abroad, usually by invitation, to raise awareness of the Orthodox Fellowship of St John the Baptist, and also as a fundraising opportunity. We can even sing at services, if people invite us with enough notice. The photo above was taken in July 2014 during the Fellowship conference on ‘Music in Orthodox Worship’.

To find out more about the choir, how to join, and about our performances, email us at with your details.  Our music files are stored on Dropbox, and rehearsals are currently Thursday or Friday evenings in Central London.
