The only thing better than singing is more singing

Ella Fitzgerald

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

Our next choir project will be Faure’s Requiem and Elgar’s The Music Makers, conducted by Chris Stark and Patricia Williams and accompanied by the Blackheath Halls Orchestra. We especially welcome new participants to the choir! This project begins in January 2024 culminating in a performance in March; please book your place here.
