We are the London Music Hall choir. We sing songs that were sung in the Music Halls of the East End of London and other related repertoire.
Music Hall songs are great! They’re funny, irreverent, sentimental and filled with interesting bits of local vernacular, history and culture.
Each week we meet up to learn new songs and sing through our growing repertoire. We learn the songs by ear so there’s no need to read music to be part of the choir.
We are a non-audition choir and welcome singers of all ability and experience levels. Come and have a ding dong with us. It’s great fun.
We are a performing choir but taking part in gigs is optional and you're welcome to join the choir just to sing at the sessions
Taking part in a choir is fun, healthy, educational and a great way to meet new people.
The songs we sing range from funny satirical songs like "Wot Cher" to more earnest sentimental tunes such as "The Boy I love".
All the songs in the choir are taught by ear so there's no need to read music.
We are a non-audition choir and open to singers of all abilities and confidence levels.
Many of the songs we sing contain local references, vernacular slang and jokes that are still very recognisable to anyone living in London today.
The choir is led by experienced music workshop leader and banjo player
Ed's sessions are both fun and musically exciting.
We rehearse on Mondays during school term times between 7:00 and 9:00
From Monday 7th January 2019 we'll be rehearsing in our new home at the Brady Arts centre, 192-196 Hanbury Street, E1 5HU.
We are currently open to new members every week and subs are £6/session or £20 per calender month.
