EXCLUSIVE new composition to start off the new term at S.I.N.G. Purley. New piece by our choral director Neil who tells us it's a piece that it's "both traditional and unconventional at the same time". All to be revealed at our first session on 5th Sept. Get in touch if you'd like to join.

The new term starts on 5th September so at this point, I feel like we need to take stock of what last term brought for our little singing group in Purley.

For a start we had SEVEN NEW ARRANGEMENTS to sing! *All* of these were exclusive to S.I.N.G. Purley - no syndicated or borrowed arrangements;...

We had a great time once again singing for St Aidan's Parish Summer Fete! *7* brand new arrangements got their debut today and two singers, Grace and Michelle, made their debut too!

We are gearing up for our performance at St Aidan's Summer Fete in #Coulsdon on Sunday 7th July, 2pm. LOTS of new material to sing. Very excited. #aCappella #Choir #LiveMusic

Been doing a lot of thinking about how to create a culture in rehearsals where making mistakes is not a cause of stress but a positive mark of effort. Any tips out there from teachers/leaders/coaches?

I sang with the choir for a couple of years and really enjoyed the sessions and friendships made. My heart was lifted after each rehearsal. The research into the benefits of singing in a choir are true! It is a non-auditioned choir and everyone is very welcoming. They sing a variety of songs and have invited to sing at various local events. If you're looking for a local choir, I would definitely recommend the group!

I can’t recommend S.I.N.G Purley enough! Thursday evening has been a highlight of my week for many years now. We sing a wide range of songs, and our members come from every background and age group imaginable. You don’t have to be able to read music, and we’re such a welcoming bunch you’ll feel part of the group very quickly. We perform at different events throughout the year and love raising money for charity when we can. Plus there’s always nice biscuits, surely enough of a draw in itself??

It's impossible to imagine life without this choir. I started in 2011 and immediately felt at home. I hadn't sung in a choir since school, and had never sung a cappella. It was a challenge that has been a delight every step of the way. My musicality has grown so much with this choir and I have friends for life. Highlights include having my own composition sung by the choir, and every wedding we've had the pleasure of performing at. I would say that if you're willing to practice and be patient with your own singing, give S.I.N.G. a go because one day, everything 'clicks' and you'll be making some incredible music.

Hi there! Would you like to sing?

Here's the thing: we're a community choir but we're *always* being told, "Wow, you're surprisingly good!"

Why should it be a surprise that a community choir can sound so great?

We believe that if you love singing, you can learn how to sing well. If you'd like to know how to sing well, we encourage you to give us a try. Goodness knows we love a try-er! 

Our musical directors love to sing too, and are passionate about passing on what wisdom they've picked up to the choir.

With every passing term, this choir gets better and better. That's why we get invited to sing all over the borough. We perform for local business organisations, the local NHS foundation, the local council, schools, museums and yes, even WEDDINGS!

Our singers say they like our choir because it's fun, friendly and they get to "really SING"!
