Monthly meets, usually with a Support Act, followed by the Headline Act ‘but sometimes we ring the changes and have a double or even a triple Headline Act. We pride ourselves on the eclectic nature of our acts and each week can be very different. We try to put on world-class Headliners and encourage up and coming Acts ... We like to encourage floor spots and have had some great performances.’

 

Founded 1946: ‘In 2017 the Eastcote Choral Society changed its name to the Eastcote and Ruislip Choral Society, reflecting the fact that we rehearse in Ruislip (although we perform in Northwood Hills.) It also enables us to raise funds in Ruislip and recognises the generous support we receive from Ruislip businesses in particular ... We are always looking for new talent: Join us!’

 

‘We are a friendly and hard-working choir of about 70 voices ... and we perform three concerts each year. New members are always made very welcome. We don't hold auditions, and while an ability to read music certainly helps, it is not always essential. The first term is half-price for new members so they have a proper chance to settle in and see if our choir is for them.’

 

‘At John Locke Academy in Uxbridge on Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday we have a vibrant music school with a friendly informal atmosphere, which runs for ten sessions each term. Approximately 350 young musicians from all parts of the borough come along on Saturday mornings and weekday evenings in term time. They play in bands, orchestras and chamber ensembles, learn music theory and sing in choirs.’ The young musicians ‘also participate in regular concerts and events’.

 

Formed 1985: ‘An amateur orchestra. Its membership consists of local musicians over the age of 18 who want to continue to develop their orchestral playing. There are now over eighty registered members. The orchestra does not hold weekly rehearsals but meets for four rehearsals before each concert. Three concerts are given during the season in different venues within the Borough.’

 

Kenton Light Operatic Society was founded in 1950: now known as KLOS Musical Theatre. We perform two musicals a year one in October and the other in March.’

‘We are an amateur choir of about twenty five singers from around Hillingdon and warmly welcome new members! The choir was founded in 1973 as Trinity Music Society and became Northwood Choral Society in 2008. During each season we rehearse and perform a variety of mainly classical choral music in one of Northwood's churches or their halls, aiming to make our concerts enjoyable for both audiences and performers. We give two major concerts, one in winter and one in spring, as well as a summer concert with music in a lighter vein ... We don't hold auditions, but only ask for commitment and enthusiasm and that you sing in tune.‘

 

Founded 1958: ‘We are a small chamber choir of 20-25 singers ... based in the London borough of Hillingdon. We enjoy a wide repertoire of secular and sacred music, which includes major choral works, motets and part-songs. We are a vibrant and ambitious choir performing three concerts a year, in which we are joined by professional soloists and players ... New members in all voices are warmly welcomed ... The ability to sight-read is helpful but not essential if you can follow a score with an acceptable degree of accuracy’.

 

‘One of the foremost amateur choirs in Hillingdon, West London. Our membership comprises approximately 80 voices, and rehearsals take place at St Margaret's Church, Uxbridge (opposite the Tube Station, door on the right side) ... We give two principal concerts every year in Winter and Spring, which take place at a variety of venues in the borough ... We also have a Carol Concert in December and a Summer Concert in July.’
