Finchley Children's Music Group

Finchley Children’s Music Group is a North London children’s choir, dedicated to the promotion of choral music for young people. It is a highly versatile group of mixed-voice choirs producing a natural, vibrant vocal quality together with a high level of musicianship and professionalism. FCMG was founded in 1958 to give the first amateur performance of Benjamin Britten’s Noye’s Fludde, and for most of its life has been the most celebrated children’s choir of its kind in the United Kingdom. Since its formation it has pursued an ongoing commitment to the commissioning of new music for children’s voices. Composers who have written for the group include Brian Chapple, Malcolm Williamson, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Alex Roth, Piers Halliwell and Christopher Gunning. FCMG is regularly invited to supply the children’s chorus for major choral works, performing frequently with the LSO, BBC SO, RPO, LPO and with the Crouch End Festival Chorus, under conductors including Kurt Masur, Matthias Bamert, André Previn, Vladimir Ashkenazy and our president Sir Colin Davis. Recent FCMG appearances at the BBC Promenade Concerts in the Royal Albert Hall, London include Weill’s Propheten (1998); Nielsen’s Springtime in FÃŒnen (1999); Alex Roth’s Earth and Sky (2000) with Joanna McGregor, and Britten’s War Requiem (2004) while other highlights have included Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortileges and Britten’s Spring Symphony both under André Previn, and High Mass at the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris on All Saints’ Day 2003,
