We are an exciting new brand of choir – a wellbeing choir! Our vision is that everyone who joins us has a great time and feels better for being a part of our group. We want to be known for our energy, enthusiasm, and the joy we bring to telling stories through singing.
We meet on Thursdays, 5.30-7pm, at Chiltern Church, SM2 5QY. From 5.30-6pm we have staggered arrival so everyone can catch up and have a natter. We sing from 6-7pm. If you'd like to come along to see what we do, just get in touch.
We sing all the hits from Elvis to ABBA and beyond. Our choir members always get a say in what song might come next. We love songs that tell a great story that we feel we and our audience can really connect to.
Fun, supportive, uplifting and friendly! We start every rehearsal with a chance for a chat and a catch up, and make sure that the singing we do is the right mix of fun and challenge. In each session you should feel like you are learning and improving as well as having a great time. We teach songs by ear (call and answer), so there will be lots of listening and trying things out together until we get the sound we’re after.
Our choir is free to join because we believe that everyone should have access to something that makes them feel great.
We became a charity in November 2022. We rely on contributions from choir members, supporters and fundraising events in order to keep our choir going.
No! We believe that everyone can sing! You’re in safe hands with Vicki as most of our members were very nervous about singing for the first time, and you only need to hear them once to know that’s not the case anymore!
Yes of course! The more, the merrier.
The choir meets roughly 50 weeks per year, with two weeks off for Christmas.
100% attendance is not compulsory – we all have busy lives! But we encourage you to come as often as you can so that you don't get left behind when we start a new song.
We aim to put on around one gig per month, depending on what's happening in the local area. Sometimes it will be more than that, especially towards Christmas or if something particularly exciting comes along.
You don't have to perform with us if you don't want to; we appreciate that everyone is different, and some people may not want to perform so we make sure there are plenty of ways to be involved in our gigs without singing – whether that’s helping backstage or sorting refreshments – there’s always something for everyone.
If you'd like to come and try us out, just fill in our contact form and Vicki will contact you within two working days.
Company of others and all the friendships built and kept! To actually stand up and sing in front of an audience – well… I would never have believed I could do it! A great feeling of self-worth and happiness when the session is over – then looking forward to the next one!
I joined the choir at its very start with no ability to sing or understanding how a choir worked. I wanted to give something back in research to show how music, in all its forms, has a profound effect on an individuals mental and physical welfare, which the choir showed. To see how those who joined the choir developed and grew in such a positive way was a privilege to be part of, I met some wonderful people.
