Further information:

Sydenham Singers is a community choir running fun, inclusive weekly Monday afternoon rehearsals. We sing music from around the world including Folk, Pop, Gospel, Pop, African and more. There are no auditions and everything is taught by ear in a relaxed way, helping you to free your voice and feel uplifted!

Sydenham Singers has been running for nine years. Participants say: “An enlightening experience: wonderful songs”; “Lovely people”; “Fantastic tutor, encouraging and inclusive”; “Lovely setting and environment”.

Normally held in an eco community room surrounded by beautiful gardens at Sydenham Garden (an award winning local gardening for mental health charity Sydenham Garden with whom the choir are associated).

Currently we’re meeting online – and let’s be honest online choir is very different from normal choir of course – we can’t all hear each other sing for one thing because there is a time delay… BUT we can see each other, talk and connect with each other, and have a lovely sing in our own homes – with all the benefits we know that brings :-). It’s very worthwhile and you may even develop different skills in the process.
