PROFESSIONAL

We strive for professional standards of music. Whether it's singing Evensong in Salisbury Cathedral, playing water glasses in the Thames Tunnel Shaft or simply busking in Waterloo Station.

Fun

We all have busy lives and most of our members have full or part time jobs, so it is important to us that our choir is a fun and welcoming environment. We have regular socials and most rehearsals end at the pub for some singers!

Community

Every year we hold a charity concert raising money for the likes of WaterAid, Save the Children and Variety the Children's Charity. We have also busked in most of London's major train stations for the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

We are currently seeking new members for all parts. Prospective singers are auditioned by the Director of Music and Choir Manager.  We run our concerts in a project structure with  5-6 rehearsals depending on the repertoire. Singers are free to sign up for projects as their availability allows. When our next project is announced all singers are emailed a Google Form to sign up for the project. The final number of singers booked is based on the type of repertoire we are performing. We rehearse in Streatham Hill and Brixton.
