In our large hall recordings can sound far finer than within the confines of one's own home ... Programmes are given both by visitors and our members.

‘The Choir was founded in 1967, is based at the London Welsh Centre, and is formed of men of all ages and backgrounds. We have a varied repertoire - from traditional Welsh songs and opera choruses to showtunes and contemporary pieces. We often perform in interesting venues that are not suited to larger choirs such as radio studios, churches and function rooms ... Our rehearsals, whilst very focussed, are relaxed and informal ... You don't need to be able to speak Welsh or to even be a great singer. We do not audition our choristers.’

‘The world’s only improvising opera company ... With an entirely new show every night, fresh from six brilliantly inventive minds and voices, Impropera can make a musical production about absolutely anything. With a bit of help from the audience in the way of suggested phrases, words or scenarios, Impropera draws you into their world of diverse characters - perhaps a chorus girl who never gets the part, a rapper, a parking attendant, or a pompous barrister; sung with profound emotional commitment and comedic verve.’

‘London Sacred Harp sings every week in London, UK in the tradition of a cappella community folk hymn singing from the United States. The Sacred Harp is also the name of the book we sing from. The tradition has roots in Europe, but has mainly developed in the American South. We don’t rehearse or perform. We sing for our fellow singers. Everyone sings. Everyone sings loudly and freely. And everyone sings for their own enjoyment. Anyone can learn to sing Sacred Harp. Our singings are open to all. Singers of all religions and none are welcome. There is no fee or subscription, but we do suggest a small donation to help us cover our basic costs. And you don’t need to be able to read music or have a so-called “good” voice.’

‘We are a dynamic and enthusiastic choir ... formed of students/alumni from colleges of the University of London. ... We perform a wide-ranging repertoire from ancient to modern and popular to classical. Our recent concerts have included works by Handel, Tallis, Elgar and Eric Whitacre; Elizabethan madrigals and songs by Billy Joel, Cole Porter and Coldplay to name but a few ... ULCC is an auditioned choir as we believe this allows us to maintain a high standard and the best vocal range and blend for our small chamber choir. Auditions can frequently put people off but ours are designed to be friendly! Your audition will usually involve performance of a song which shows off your voice, as well as a short sight-reading exercise which is given to you at the time. We welcome anyone who is interested to come along and audition.’

Many of Britain's leading concert and cathedral organists have performed on the organ in recent years ...'
