Love to sing? Want to sing? Come and join us at my Streatham choir, Sing Out Streatham!
Our Summer Term runs from Thursday 12 May to Thursday 11 August, 7.30-9pm.
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 Secondary School, Leigham Court Road, Streatham Hill. 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. New singers are welcome to join at any point in the term.
We sing together, and then usually always head down the hill for a drink/bite to eat/cup of tea at SW16 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!”

When do you meet?
Thursday evenings during term time, from 7.30 – 9pm.
Where do you meet?
Dunraven Secondary School, Leigham Court Road, Streatham Hill, SW16 2QB.
We meet at the back of the secondary school site. Come in through the main gates, turn right, and follow the building round, past the football pitch and through the gate, right to the back of the building. We sing in the room on the ground floor with a huge glass window.
How much does it cost?
A note on rates:
Concession rate: This is for anyone who feels like they best fit into this category. I don’t need you to show me proof of low income or unemployment or anything like that – if it feels for you that this is the rate you need to pay, I trust your judgment.If you normally pay the standard rate and then for whatever reason you’re in a phase where you need to pay the lower rate for a bit, that’s fine, do what feels right for you. Again, I trust your judgment.
If the concession rate feels out of range and you wouldn’t be able to come otherwise, I’d rather you just come, and pay what you can (£3? £1?) if you like, or don’t pay at all. When finances are difficult, that can be really stressful, and singing is really good for stress, so those are the weeks you should definitely be coming and 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 and the Tate Modern. 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 music do you sing?
Here are some recordings of our favourite songs.
