Who are we?
The Fortune Green Choir. We have been singing since 2007.
What sort of choir are we?
We aim to sing good music well. And enjoy doing it in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Who can join?
Anyone who enjoys singing! All are welcome. The Fortune Green Choir is a non-auditioned community choir. Our members range from experienced choristers to people singing in a choir for the first time.
What do we sing?
Anything, so long as it's interesting or challenging! Take a look at the Repertoire page.
What do we sound like?
There is a rehearsal recording here.
Do we perform?
Yes. We usually:
- host four or five other choirs in a Spring Singfest
- have a Christmas Concert, with supporting groups and performers
- sing carols at the West Hampstead Christmas Fair
All the money raised by these events goes to charity.
Where and when do we meet?
Emmanuel Church, Lyncroft Gardens, West Hampstead, London NW6 1JU. See here.
On Tuesday evenings during three 'terms'.
How much does it cost?
Your first evening is at no charge so you can try it out.
It is £7 for a Tuesday evening session, but paying ahead for a whole term works out to just £5 each week. The only other cost is for sheet music for pieces still in copyright.
Who runs the Choir?
We have a Steering Group rather than a formal committee - we're pretty democratic!
The Steering Group currently consists of: Babs Sargeant (treasurer), Jean-Anne Charkham (music librarian), Margaret Budy, Janet Fisher and Liz Williams (e-mails).
