* * Sponsored Channel Swim**

for East London Chorus & Haven House Children’s Hospice

Could you swim the Channel in aid of East London Chorus and Haven House Children’s Hospice? Don’t panic – you don’t need to do this in one go! The idea is to commit to one of the following options, either individually or as a team, and raise money for two great causes over a twelve-week period.

Find out how to take part or to sponsor one or more of our swimmers and help us to achieve our target of raising a £1,000.

Join Us

Rehearsal 1East London Chorus is recruiting in all voice parts, particularly tenors and basses.

Our 2016-17 season repertoire spans the 16th to the 21st century and includes settings of Dixit Dominus by  Monteverdi, Vivaldi and Handel and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms.  Our first concert, in November, features Macmillan’s Strathclyde Motets  and Haydn’s Little Organ Mass.

If you are interested in joining our choir, and would like to try us out, do come along to one of our rehearsals. We’re recruiting in all voice parts and especially keen to hear from tenors and basses. Whatever part you sing, you can be sure of a warm welcome. Read more.

We also have a bursary scheme for students of UEL.
