New! We plan to start each term with an ‘open rehearsal’ to invite possible new choir members to come along and sample what we are doing.

The first of these open rehearsals will be at 7.00 pm for 7.30 on Tuesday January 7th  2020  at the Kingswood Hall, Kingswood Place, Dacre Park, London,SE13 5BU You can borrow copies of the music for next term i

For the summer term, when we will be performing Handel’s tremendous  drama Theodora, the open rehearsal will be Tuesday April 21st 2020

The Choir is self-funding, with income from members’ subscriptions and ticket sales.

Members are expected to be able to read music but need not  be expert sight-readers.  There are no formal auditions but the Music Director gives new members an informal vocal assessment, and is always willing to offer advice on matters of vocal technique.

Singing in a choir is a  very  enjoyable pastime with great artistic rewards. It develops  the voice and musical skills and gives an insight into languages. Research shows that singing is beneficial to health and well - being. It reduces stress levels and increases aerobic fitness. It can build confidence in public speaking. There is a real thrill in working with people of different ages and backgrounds to produce an excellent performance, so there is a social element too.

Bursaries the choir offers up to four bursaries per year (one in each voice part) to singers aged under 25. The recipients receive free membership and their own copies of the year’s music.
