Our new year starts in September, working towards a concert on Saturday December 17th on the theme of Night – to line up (nearly) with the longest, darkest night of the year.
First rehearsal is on Tuesday September 6th, but not in Christ Church. We will be in sectionals that evening so please confirm your venue. New members are always welcome – come along and give us a try!
About the choir
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 the Sheen area, and try to perform a major work every year, as well as other smaller concerts.
We find that singing is a cathartic experience. It 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 to join us. 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). Drop us a line and we can let you know where rehearsals will be.
We rehearse from 7.45pm to 9.30pm and then head to one of our local pubs to catch up.
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!
