We're a community choir in Peckham Rye, open to all singers and 'non-singers', whether your singing is limited to the shower or you belt out ballads on the London Overground.
We sing beautiful and uplifting folk, gospel and traditional songs from around the world. If you love to sing, want to learn to sing, or just want to meet a whole load of lovely people who live in your local area, come and join us!
There’s no need to read music. All songs are taught by ear.
Mondays from 7.30–9.00pm, £7 waged/£5 (suggested) unwaged. First session free.

Learn Sabar and Djembe drumming here at the Copleston Centre with Mohamed Gueye.
Expert percussionist Mohamed was born into a large griot family of drummers from Dakar in Senegal. He learnt the Sabar and Djembe drum with his father and grandfather from the age of five and has been playing professionally since the age of 15. The griots are lively performers who combine storytelling with poetry, history and music.
The Talking About Music class is Music Appreciation with a difference! We listen to 4 or 5 pieces each week, which the tutor introduces, and then everyone expresses their thoughts and reactions.
During each term we follow various themes and composers, and the repertoire of local concerts. Members are also encouraged to bring along their own cds.
Lead by a musician and experienced tutor each session costs £3, and you can attend any time. Fridays 1.30-3pm.
