We’re back! Sort of….
A lovely hour of socially-distanced singing, in the beautiful open space of a gorgeous garden (thank you, S). And plenty of time to reacquaint ourselves with the joys of a post-music pint at the Plough.
We think we have enough willing participants to keep this experiment going. We would do some singing just for fun, things we know well; and some work on the pieces for the Autumn term. Watch out for posts announcing plans, and please RSVP as early as you can.
Many thanks to those who attended our November concert, Celebration, kicking off the events for our tenth anniversary year. We had hoped that JUNE 20, 2020 would be the date for our gala birthday event. We would have been performing Mozart’s Requiem Mass and a number of other works. But Covid-19 has intervened, of course. We will be announcing a decision on when that concert will happen in due course. We very much hope that you will be able to join us, whenever it is.
Sheen Gate Choir is a non-selective amateur choir based in East Sheen, South West London, UK. Formed in 2009, 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 members’ 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 every one, you can still be a part of the choir and a part of performances) and head to Tower House School, Sheen Lane, or Christ Church, West Temple Sheen, SW14 7RT. Drop us a line and we can let you know where rehearsal will be.
We rehearse from 7.45pm to 9.30pm and then head to one of our local pubs, The Plough or The Victoria.
In recent years, major concerts have included Faure’s Requiem, Schubert’s Mass in G, Saint Saens’ Requiem, Puccini’s Messa di Gloria, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Mozart’s Requiem as well as more contemporary works by the likes of Britten, Vaughan Williams, Whitacre, Rutter and Goodall. We have travelled to perform with other choirs in Salzburg and Vienna, and at the Royal Albert Hall.
If you would like to join us, please complete the following form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. No audition is required – you can just turn up and have a go!
