‘A friendly thriving choir of over 100 voices drawing singers of all ages from a wide area of West London. Programmes are chosen to provide the opportunity to sing great works from the choral repertoire as well as to explore less familiar music, ranging from Renaissance to the present day. Members are regularly canvassed for ideas and preferences ... If you are interested in joining, please come along and sing with us at one or two of our Thursday rehearsals. The procedure is that the conductor will ask you to pass a brief voice test when you have found your feet. A basic knowledge of music is necessary, but perfect sight reading or a voice like Pavarotti's is not! There is no need to prepare a piece.’
