Our first year as Eclipse Choir

Eclipse Rehearsal with Jim

In May 2015 the Eclipse Choir was formed by Jim Hawkins and his team. It is an audition-based, score-reading choir built of amateur singers ready for a new musical challenge!
Most of our singers are new to reading music and learning from scores and they show great courage and tenacity to learn so quickly. Their achievements are that so far we have put on two sell-out shows, one in Richmond Adult Community College and more recently in St Matthew's Church in Wimbledon. Our amazing audiences have been rightly blown away by what they had achieved in so little time! Read more about our story here...
