Welcome to Pegasus!
Whether you’re just getting curious about choral music, or you’re as passionate about it as we are, there are several reasons you’ll want to hear Pegasus – if you’re not a fan already! Read a little about us below, and check out our interview as Handel House Museum’s “Musician of the Month”. For details of our next performance, scroll down to the bottom of this page, or click on the Performance tab.
We perform about a dozen times a year, in venues ranging from London’s historic churches to major theatres and concert halls. We also give concerts around southern England, and sometimes abroad too. Read reviews of a recent performance for the Tilford Bach Society, and of our debut at St Martin in the Fields, London.
Our repertoire ranges from the classics of western sacred music to operetta and close harmony. We love to bring lesser-known works to life and to premiere new pieces. We’ve even collaborated in contemporary dance performances! Whatever we do, our performances are designed to enrapture, enlighten and excite our audiences.
From Radio 3’s The Choir to international choral competitions in Spain and Italy, Pegasus has won recognition for its high musical standards and commitment to creative and beautiful music-making. We’ve had successful collaborations with conductors such as John Rutter, orchestras such as the London Handel Players, and world-famous ballet dancer Carlos Acosta.

Beyond the Wall: Commemorating the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - Sunday, 21 September 2014
“BEYOND THE WALL”
It is 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, which for many was the symbol of the oppressive Eastern Bloc. In this concert Pegasus explores music which has emerged from post-Soviet Eastern Europe, alongside the 16-part Der Abend by Strauss – the epitome of German high romanticism before the War.
Our free concert is part of London’s annual Open House weekend – http://www.londonopenhouse.org/ We shall be singing at 5pm at St Mary-le-Bow, in the City of London, which will itself will be holding free guided tours of the church and crypt at 11.00, 12.30, 2.00 & 3.30 (meet in the vestibule).
