How It All Began

The original Heart & Soul Choir began in 2008 when our founder, Vocal Coach Roz McLeod CT ABRSM (Voice), pulled together a group of people to sing for a one-off fundraising event she was organising. The singers enjoyed it so much, they didn’t want to stop – the rest is history.

The Heart & Soul Choirs are about singing and music being accessible to all in their community, and are designed to be wholly inclusive so that Members can make friends with local people, learn to sing some uplifting and positive repertoire, come out of their comfort zones and impress themselves every week with their vocal skills!

From Then to Now

Since then, we have done lots of fun things, because we enjoy it. We have:

  • Sung with The London Community Gospel Choir;

  • Been part of the Core Choir for BBC's Big Sing;

  • Taken part in a huge Flash Mob for Waitrose;

  • Sung for many, many fundraising events

... and are proud to end every year by singing in the local pub to a massive audience of happy Christmassy patrons.

Nothing Scary Is Happening Here!

To reassure some of our more nervous or intimidated potential members out there, please note that:

- You do not need to be able to read music

- There is no scary audition

- Nobody has to perform if they don’t want to

Members are welcome to just come along and enjoy our rehearsals every week and raise their spirits, take advantage of the well-publicised health benefits of singing and have a great time.
