If you feel amazing after a good sing, and you are ready for your next vocal challenge, then please get in touch. We're now auditioning for new members for the autumn term of 2017, particularly, as always for men! We rehearse two groups on Monday and Thursday evenings in All Saints Church, Kingston Upon Thames. Please get in touch soon if you'd like to have a go, learn about YOUR VOICE and sing with us. We promise it is not at all intimidating!
