Vivamus began life in July 2002. Joseph Nolan's desire was to form a chamber choir of top-level amateur singers or ex-professional singers. Utilising Joseph's musical reputation and his immense good fortune in finding a sponsor, worldwide business 'Brigade Electronics', Vivamus has stormed onto the London choral scene attracting young singers of a very high standard. Vivamus made its debut at St Georges' Hanover Square in October 2002 singing Kodaly's Missa Brevis and Rutter's Requiem and soon afterwards performed a Christmas concert at the National Portrait Gallery, to a sell out audience. Perhaps the choir's greatest coup in its infancy was its performance of Bach's monumental B Minor Mass at St John's Smith Square with the acclaimed orchestra The London Mozart Players in March 2003 which received great critical acclaim. Vivamus has also appeared at the Royal Festival Hall in December 2004, performing Elijah with the Philharmonia Chorus, London Festival Orchestra and Sir Willard White. Over the last 4 years, Vivamus has built up a diverse repertoire that spans five centuries of music’s most challenging and most popular composers.

Vivamus is a young and exciting choir, and we believe the social life of the choir is just as important as the excellent music we make. We are always on the lookout for enthuastic and committed people to join us.
