Blackheath Halls’ Community Engagement Programme has been promoting classical singing with young people in the Royal Borough of Greenwich since 2007 through its annual community operas. Building on this work, Blackheath Halls and Royal Borough of Greenwich Music Hub have collaborated to establish a high level classical choir for the young people in the borough: The Royal Greenwich and Blackheath Halls Choir. The Choir launched in November 2015 with 45 singers from ten Primary Schools and has received major funding from Arts Council England.
