Members get to learn and sing great songs each week and perform with professional musicians in an end-of-term performance. We offer online learning resources, a community-led social programme and a range of membership plan options to suit member preference.

What Our Members Say

Any one who can sing in the shower or kitchen at home can sing in a choir and reap the benefits of new friends, improved mental health and just having a good time!
If you are thinking of trying out choir, don’t be scared and don’t worry if you think your voice isn’t good enough. I remember how freaked out I was the first time I came along and literally within minutes I was made to feel so comfortable and welcome. You can always blend into the background for a couple of sessions to build your confidence and you’ll never be put on the spot!
Singing with others really boosts your confidence and self esteem. It’s fun and easy to make new friends through choir. The performances and special events are amazing to do, giving you such a buzz!
A fun exciting environment to be yourself and learn great techniques from truly talented musicians and to feel part of something very cool!
If I can join a choir with zero singing background and be made to feel as welcome as i have, then anyone can join!
The songs and arrangements are fantastic.. There is nothing quite like hearing those harmonies together. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming and you will forge new friendships. Abi, Ross and Eleanor are hugely talented and excellent teachers who inspire with their boundless creativity, energy, drive and humour. You will have the opportunity to perform in a variety of venues and it's always exciting leading up to a performance. Singing is good for your soul and everyone no matter their experience or voice is welcomed.
