Halifax Chamber Choir was founded in 1899 as the Halifax Madrigal Society. The name changed in 1989 to reflect the wider range of choral repertoire which includes a wide range of sacred and secular music spanning the centuries. The choir performs in Halifax and other venues in West Yorkshire.


Aljosa Skorja (Josh), musical director of  Halifax Chamber Choir, is a Slovenian conductor and musicologist. He is the winner of the London Classical Soloists’ 2015 Conducting Competition. Aljosa’s other appearances recently include concerts with the Slovene National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Leeds Baroque Musicians and Stockport Symphony Orchestra. His future engagements include a series of concerts with the Slovene Philharmonic and returning to London to work with the London Classical Soloists.
