The choir is an independent mixed chorus of some 80 singers. Additional voices, particularly tenors and basses, are always welcome, though it may sometimes be necessary to limit the number in a particular voice part to maintain the overall balance.  The members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, with ages ranging from 20s to 70s (see Meet the members page).


Aims – the choir aims to achieve high vocal standards while maintaining a friendly and inclusive social atmosphere.

Concerts – There are three main concerts each year. Professionals take the principal solo parts but there are often opportunities for members to sing smaller solos.


Concerts  normally take place in St Margaret’s Church, Lee Terrace, SE13  (see map) on Sunday evenings near the ends of the autumn, spring and summer school terms,


The choir’s general policy is to perform works in the language and with the accompaniment that the composers intended.

Accompaniments are provided by established local orchestras or ensembles of local players, or with St Margaret’s excellent organ, chamber organ or piano.


In addition to the main concert programme, the choir joins in other local performances, sings carols for charity at Christmas, takes part in workshops and competitions and holds a variety of social events.


The choir meets on Tuesday evenings during school terms, from 7.30 – 9.30 pm in the Kingswood Hall, Kingswood Place, London SE13.  Typically, the session starts with a few physical relaxation exercises, then a vocal warm up, then rehearsal of the music planned for the forthcoming concert.  There is a 20-minute break for tea/coffee and socialising.
