Who are we?

London City Voices is so much more than your average London choir… We are a community, a group of friends, an increasingly-large group of drinking buddies… and we are also a dynamic non-religious, non-audition community London choir.

We have four branches: West End on Monday evenings, Victoria on Tuesday evenings, City of London on Wednesday evenings and Waterloo on Thursday evenings. The aim of London City Voices is to give people an opportunity to sing their hearts out up to four times a week after work. We come together to have some fun and make a great sound (and then go to the pub!). We start rehearsals at 6:30pm and finish at 8pm (occasionally a little later). As of December 2015, approximately 80 people attend on Monday nights, about 25 on Tuesdays and about 120 on Wednesdays.

Our repertoire

Our main repertoire is drawn from contemporary pop and folk/traditional tunes. Examples of what we sing include:
  • Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen
  • Happy, Pharrell
  • Mr Blue Sky, ELO
  • Rock medley
  • Modern musicals medley
  • Life on Mars, David Bowie
  • Fix You, Cold Play
  • Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen
  • Bob Marley medley
  • Africa, Toto
  • Eleanor Rigby, The Beatles
  • The Beach Boys medley
  • Gangsta’s Paradise, Coolio
  • One Day Like This, Elbow
  • Go Your Own Way, Fleetwood Mac
  • Can’t Help Falling In Love, Elvis
  • 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover, Paul Simon
  • Thinking Out Loud, Ed Sheeran
  • Video Killed The Radio Star, The Buggles

Beginners welcome

No experience necessary and you don’t need to be able to read music – complete beginners are welcome. We are an audition-free choir, the important thing is to want to sing! No need to book, just turn up to any of our rehearsals! Your first session is a free taster session. Check the Schedule page to make sure that there’s a rehearsal on the day you’re planning to come. Termly membership of one branch gives you automatic membership of the others, so if you miss your regular one for any reason, you can make it up by coming to any of the other branches.

Pricing

£95 per term (14/15 weeks) – that’s just over £6 per session if you attend once per week, less if you go to a couple of sessions! Or £250 for a full year (3 terms) – that works out to less than £6 per session if you attend every week.

We’re flexible with timings and offer the opportunity to pay in two instalments. You can also pay as you go: £10 per session. Most people choose to pay termly as it works out to much better value. If you join late in the term then we will adjust your payment so you are not paying for sessions you couldn’t have attended (we start adjusting this after the first four weeks or so). The payments for the full year are non-refundable.
