There are many ways in which you can get involved in singing at Blackheath Halls. You don’t need to have had any previous singing/musical experience or be able to read music – just a passion for singing!

Choir projects

You will rehearse a piece as a choir once a week for a few months before putting on a performance, often with our Blackheath Halls Orchestra. We find many people return for most/all of the choir projects, but some prefer to dip in and out. Most recently, we performed Bach’s St John Passion on 2 April with our orchestra and professional soloists.

Blackheath Goes Gospel

Blackheath goes Gospel runs annually at Blackheath Halls between September and November, concluding with a concert in our Great Hall. Come and learn gospel songs as a choir with our fantastic leaders, Lena Wright and Abe Hampton.

Blackheath Halls Opera

Every year we produce a fully-staged opera, with professional soloists and production team working alongside a fantastic community chorus. In 2022 our opera will be Bernstein’s Candide.

We also run other singing projects throughout the year, such as our recent Once Upon a Musical musical theatre course, which was for both adults and children.

“Very humbled to be part of such an awesome project with every single expectation being completely smashed by a million miles!!! I come back year on year because it’s just such a joyous project to be a part of. I feel incredibly lucky that I have been able to sing with such wonderful people for so many years and that such a great community resource is on my doorstep”
