We are often asked where the name A440 came from. Well, for those who want to know, here is the answer…

The choir’s name was inspired by three key elements:

  • The frequency of 440 Hz is the pitch of the musical note A below middle C
  • The choir aims to maintain a membership of about 40 singers
  • Members are drawn from an area surrounding Reading’s A4 highway

Put these together and we get A440! All illustrated beautifully by our logo below:
