Barnes Community Choir was founded in 2011, with its focus on being fun and inclusive. Since then the choir has grown in numbers and confidence and we tackle a range of repertoire but maintain that original ethos of 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.
