We believe we are never too old to sing ambitious and advanced choral repertoire

It is possible to sing long into old age and make a beautiful sound, as long as you receive the right means to strengthen your vocal technique and sustain your voice with vocal coaching tailored to the needs of older voices.

Many amateur singers have sung all their lives at a high, semi-professional level and will find it very hard to leave their singing passion behind when they leave the choir that has been their second home for so many years.

We want to give these singers a new home, where you can still sing the demanding repertoire you enjoy, and of course meet your singing friends and have lots of fun.

We meet on Tuesday afternoons 1 – 4pm at St Botolph Hall (2 mins walk from Liverpool Street Station)

Upcoming dates for workshops in 2024:

Tuesday 14.5.2024
Tuesday 18.6.2024
Tuesday 16.7.2024

You will get a longer and more specific warm-up to strengthen and nurture your voice and make sure you can sing well for longer.
If you are experiencing age-related vocal problems or are worried these problems might arise, this is the choir for you.

The repertoire is old favourites but also works you might always have wanted to discover.

This choir is subscription-based.
The price per workshop is 20£ (including tea/coffe and sheet music)

Give it a go!

Don’t let an ageing voice stop you from singing

Frequently Asked questions

Do I have to audition?

You don’t have to audition. But you are welcome to do a voluntary audition to get a brief feedback on the state of your voice.

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely! Singing is best with people you like and love. Why not convince your friends that they are never too old to sing either?
