 About Us          

Rehearsals, Come & Sing Events & Concerts

 

We work in parallel with the school terms. We rehearse the current programme every Monday evening and perform a concert at the end of term. The 2020-21 season will start on Monday Sept. 7 and the year runs from September to June with breaks for Christmas, Easter and half-terms. Holiday dates are announced at the start of each term and full details are on our members pages. Our Autumn 2020 season will culminate in our concert of Handel's Messiah at All Saints, West Dulwich on Saturday Nov. 28. We usually perform at least three concerts a year, including two with professional orchestras and top-class soloists. Please see our concerts page.

 

We have regular Saturday Come & Sing events, frequently at St. Barnabas, which are rewarding and enjoyable opportunities to spend a day engaging with wonderful music in greater depth and with more time to explore than our shorter Monday rehearsals permit. Most recently we conducted in-depth workshops on opera choruses in February 2020, and in the past couple of years have also tackled Mozart's Requiem and Mendelssohn's Elijah. In another recent workshop we tackled Brahms German Requiem and on yet another occasion we enjoyed a memorable study day for the Bach Christmas Oratorio.

Overseas Tours

 

As well as giving concerts in the Dulwich area, the choir has performed more widely both in central London and abroad. A tour to Italy's Amalfi Coast in October 2018 included concerts in Sorrento, Ravello and Salerno. The previous tour, in 2016, was to Spain, and since the first overseas concert tour in 1998 we have also visited Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Estonia, Portugal and Bosnia-Herzegovina, performing in a number of prestigious venues.
