East London Chorus

The chorus for East London and Docklands

Join Us

East London Chorus is 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. See below for more information.

Being a member of the choir means being part of a committed, lively and very friendly group of singers.

We come from all walks of life, range in age from our 20s to our 80s and have a variety of singing experiences. We all share one thing – a passion for singing.

Together we perform at a high level, not just because of the support from each member, but because our rehearsals include expert tuition from our charismatic Music Director. You can expect entertaining and lively rehearsals, where over time you will develop your voice and improve your singing skills.
