Why sing with us?

Humans like to dance and sing. We can’t help you with the dancing, but “classical” music for large choirs includes some of the greatest art in the western tradition. And you can help make it, if you can be free on Tuesday evenings.

Bach, Handel, Fauré or Brahms — great composers left us a treasure trove of music that ordinary people can sing. And what a gift it was.

Big choirs were never professional, and as Gareth Malone showed, almost everyone can sing. Our choir is open to anyone with or without experience. You don’t have to be able to read music, and there are no auditions. We have weekly rehearsals on Tuesday evenings during three “terms” each year.

To sing with us from January 2020 email us or just turn up at William Ellis School NW5 1RN on Tuesday January 7th at 7pm (or January 14th, not quite so early). But first, if you can, look at how to join below.

Members pay a per-term fee — currently £50, only £10 for students and claimants. You’re welcome to sing with us for an evening before you decide. We rehearse every week on Tuesday evenings (7.30pm) at William Ellis School NW5 1RN.

In January we’ll be learning Brahm’s Requiem. We’ll perform it at a relaxed evening concert on Saturday 28th March.

Interested, but want to find out whether we could be the choir for you? Why not drop us a line now to get added to our mailing list. You’ll receive updates about the new choir term. Just email us or call our secretary on 07960 337 130.

You could also join our Facebook group, which is called “North Camden Chorus”.

Don’t worry if you don’t know what part you sing (soprano, alto, tenor or bass); we can help you to work that one out. There are no auditions, we welcome anyone who wants to sing with us.

How to find us

We rehearse in William Ellis School, Highgate Road, London, NW5 1RN.

We meet in the main hall on the first floor. From the main entrance turn right and go up the stairs. At the top of the stairs, the hall doors are in front of you.
