Palace AC Choir

Palace Acappella Choir

A community choir based in the heart of Crystal Palace. We are just over 2 years old and our ethos is fun, freedom and community. Everyone is welcome and there are no auditions. Our leader and co-Founder, Eleanor Rastall, is a local singer and teacher who loves helping people find their voice and enjoy music. Performances have ranged from opening Crystal Palace Festival to virtual performances for West End Concerts at the Upper Norwood Library Hub during lockdown.

The choir

Clapham Community Choir

Clapham Community choir is a friendly and enthusiastic group of diverse voices, open to anyone who wants to sing in a community choir. The choir is led by choir director Adam Saunders and sings a wide range of music in a variety of genres – classical, contemporary, folk, and more. Recent highlights have included a concert along with three local primary schools to launch a book about childhood experiences in Clapham in WWII, and a performance in the Clapham Common Summer Bandstand Concerts series.

Cambria Choir

The Cambria Choir

The Cambria Choir is Herne Hill's local community choir. A non-auditioning choir, singing in four part harmony, we started life 11 years ago, upstairs in the function room of the Cambria pub. Sarah Fisher and Lucy Harrower are the joint directors, who complement each other's teaching styles and write their own arrangements. Sarah performs with Hazel O Connor, and Lucy has a more classical background, teaching in many of Southwark's primary schools. We have been practising on Zoom during the lockdown months, and currently rehearse at the Herne Hill Station Hall, above Herne Hill's railway station. We are really excited to be singing once again in the Herne Hill music festival, and look forward to seeing many of our friends there.

Nunhead Community Choir

Nunhead Community Choir

Nunhead Community Choir is an all-inclusive, non-auditioned choir of 35-40 members who sing for pleasure. We've been going for about 10 years and are led by Ben Swan, who also arranges much of our material. We rehearse at Ivydale School on Thursday evenings in normal times, and sing a wide range of material from pop songs old and new to favourites from the musicals and traditional songs. During the first lockdown, we were logging into Zoom every week to continue rehearsals, and have more recently arranged outdoor rehearsals. It is great to be able to sing together again.
