Last year we performed Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem (see details) at Christ Church (16 June 2018) and are now working on an exciting program for our 2019 summer concert on June 22nd, featuring Puccini’s Messa di Gloria alongside a collection of operatic choruses and solos.
Sheen Gate Choir is a non-selective amateur choir based in East Sheen, South West London, UK. We rehearse every week in either a local school or in Christchurch, and try to perform a major work every year, as well as other smaller concerts.
Singing is a cathartic experience. Singing is uplifting, challenging and rewarding, and is a social part of our member’s lives. You do not need to be able to read music or have previous experience in a choir. All you need to do is commit to Tuesday* nights during term time (and don’t worry if you cannot commit to everyone, you can still be a part of the choir and a part of performances) and head to Christ Church, West Temple Sheen, SW14 7RT.
We rehearse from 7.45pm to 9.30pm and then head to one of our local pubs, The Plough or The Victoria.
The last three years’ major concerts have included Faure’s Requiem, Schubert’s Mass in G, Saint Saens’ Requiem, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Mozart’s Requiem as well as more contemporary works by the likes of Whitacre, Rutter and Goodall. We have traveled to perform with other choirs in Salzburg and Vienna, and at the Royal Albert Hall.

*Please note that our rehearsal schedule has changed. Week one of each month we are at Tower House School, Sheen Lane on the Wednesday night. Please contact us if you are unsure.
