All you need to join the choir is a curiosity about singing and an enthusiasm for meeting people and making music. No previous experience is necessary and there is no audition!

Joe encourages us to practice a little and provides us with recordings of our parts online so we can sing along at home.

The choir’s emphasis is on fun and the experience of learning and singing together as much as it is about staging public performances. (If doing a public performance is not your thing there is absolutely no pressure to take part.)

About BCC


About BCC


 

Barnes Community Choir was founded in 2011, with the goal of offering accessible, fun and high-quality musical opportunities to anyone who wanted to join, with no auditions required. The choir has grown in numbers and confidence over the last six years and we tackle a wide range of repertoire but we have always maintained that original ethos of full participation and good humour.

We sing contemporary choral works, pop, jazz, gospel and musical theatre, all of which are learnt without sheet music, so no sight-reading ability is necessary! We perform each term in and around Barnes - in churches, pubs, community spaces and even street corners - as well as in other venues throughout London. Previous events have included performances at the Young Vic, the South Bank Centre and the Tate Modern. 

Our musical director is Joe Bunker, a freelance MD and Barnes resident, and our musical team is completed by accompanists, instrumentalists, and guest conductors including West End singers and musical directors.
