Love to sing? Want to sing? Come and join us at my Streatham choir, Sing Out Streatham!
Sing Out Streatham is a fun and friendly community choir based in Streatham and led by Xenia Davis.
We meet on Thursday evenings from 7.30-9pm at Dunraven School Sixth Form. We sing beautiful a cappella folk, gospel and world music songs in 3 and 4 part harmony, and all songs are taught by ear.
Sing Out Streatham started in January 2013 and we’ve grown to around 50 members.
Everyone is welcome to come and sing with us, whether your singing is limited to the shower or you belt out ballads on the London Overground. There is no need to read music, and you don’t need to audition.
We sing together, and then usually always head down the hill for a drink/bite to eat/cup of tea at Perfect Blend on Streatham High Road.
“I came along to Sing Out Streatham tonight with my friend Julia & just wanted to say what a wonderful session it was! That was my first group singing thing since school & that was some time ago – will definitely come again!”
Want to find out more about Sing Out Streatham? Here are some handy FAQs
When do you meet? Thursday evenings during term time, from 7.30 – 9.00pm.
Where do you meet? Dunraven School Sixth Form, 92-94 Leigham Court Road, Streatham, SW16 2QB.
How much does it cost? The first session is free! After that it’s £7 waged/ £5 concessions per week. If £5 ever feels out of range though, come along anyway and pay what you can. Money should never be a reason for not singing!
I really want to come but I don’t know if I can commit to every week. Is that ok? Come along every week, or just come once or twice a term, whatever works for you. No need to commit to every week – we get that people have busy schedules.
Does Sing Out Streatham perform? Yes we do. We usually do 1-2 performances per term. We’ve sung at the Southbank Centre, the British Home, at local community festivals, and we’ve flash mobbed Brixton Village. We also took part in Singing For Unity events in London in 2016. Performing is totally optional though, it’s fun, but not everyone’s cup of tea, so if you’re not into performing, that’s totally fine.
What kind of songs do you sing? Listen to some of the songs we’ve been singing recently here:
How do I join? Just come along on a Thursday evening at 7.30. We don’t have auditions, and there are no limits to how many people can join per part.
Questions? Get in touch or just turn up on a Thursday night!
Hang on. Did you say you did a flash mob? Yup, we did. Here’s a video of it. Enjoy.
