‘We are an outstanding choir firmly established in the heart of our community of Wimbledon. We perform a broad spectrum of classical music to a very high standard ... Alongside leading players and soloists we give both orchestral and unaccompanied concerts up to four times per year, making a significant contribution to the cultural life of our community ... Entry to the choir is by audition. Auditions are conducted in a relaxed environment and auditionees are asked to sing a short prepared aria or song, to undertake some simple vocal exercises and a short sight-reading test.’

‘The Choir is open to all ages and abilities, with no requirement to be able to read music. Enthusiasm and commitment are the qualifications you need ... Our rehearsals are lively social occasions and our performances range from sing-songs in the pub to appearances in front of several hundred at the South Bank Centre ... So that we can operate at outdoor events without a power supply, and for an extra bit of audience participation, we have developed pedal power. This was initially for the piano but now also for sound reinforcement and public address. The equipment consists of one bicycle, a stand with a generator, an amplifier with a power output for the piano, and an optional mixer if microphones or other sound sources are needed.‘

Founded 1975: ‘There are no auditions. We encourage people to join us for one or more rehearsals on a trial basis. Many of the present members have excellent sight-reading ability, but this is a skill which comes with practice, so anyone interested in joining should not be deterred if their sight-reading is less than perfect. The size of the choir is usually somewhere between twenty and thirty. On occasions we invite guest singers to join us when larger forces are needed. Our philosophy has always been to perform music which is a little off the beaten track’.
