Welcome to notorious - the choir with a difference

Founded in Birmingham by the visionary musical director, Clare Edwards in 1997, notorious is a vibrant and welcoming choir that regularly rehearses in the heart of Kings Heath.

Our Mission

At notorious, we are passionate about creating music that is accessible for all, to be enjoyed by both our choir members and our audience alike, no matter what their background or musical experience.

Our Musical Palette

We thrive on diversity, and our concerts weave an exciting tapestry of musical genres from classical to pop, jazz and folk melodies and often embracing works by new composers. Our concert programmes blend these genres – often accompanied by talented soloists and other musicians to create a unique and unforgettable notorious experience.

Unconventional Venues 

notorious is not confined to conventional concert venues. We believe music should be experienced in all its glory in more unconventional settings throughout our city. Prepare to be surprised and enchanted as we bring our music to life in unique and unexpected places.

We’re always excited to meet people who would like to join our choir!

We rehearse one evening a week (19:30 to 21:30) in Kings Heath. To accommodate everyone’s schedules, we rotate rehearsal days each week – from Monday through to Thursday.

Following our rehearsals, we often gather for a friendly social at a local pub, typically at the Hare and Hounds or The Red Lion.
