Come and Sing with us on Sunday, 24 March

Come and sing poster

Come and sing – and have fun – alongside the very friendly members of Belsize Community Choir and the Michael Singers (a student choir at University College London).

Earth Songs is our theme this spring and we’ll teach you three wonderful songs inspired by the Brazilian rainforest (Tres Cantos Nativos by Brazilian composer Marcos Leite), a traditional Japanese spring song (which we’ll explore with bells), and a rousing new ballad about Planet Earth (based on the tune House of the Rising Sun) arranged for choir and band. We hope you’ll join us in performing these songs in a concert at 5 pm.

Open to all, whatever your musical experience. Under-18s welcome if accompanied by adults.

From 1:30pm  Pick up music and meet the choir
2pm – 4:30pm Rehearsal with tea break.
5pm – 6pm    Concert
Singers and audience are all warmly invited to stay for wine and refreshments afterwards.

Our energetic and welcoming director Sheena Phillips specialises in working with amateur singers and will get you in touch with the joy of singing – and making rainforest animal noises!

Tickets:  £10 waged, £5 unwaged, under-10s free at
