Join us

 

We are a friendly choir and are always looking for new members in all voice parts. There is no audition to join West Barnes Singers. Just turn up and see what you think, with no obligation.

 

Rehearsal and venue

 

Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings in Holy Cross Hall, Adela Avenue (corner of Douglas Avenue), Motspur Park, Surrey, KT3 6LF from 8 to 10 pm. 

 

We are roughly a 10 minute walk from Motspur Park train station and a 10 minute bus ride - number 131 or 163 - from Raynes Park train station, (15 minutes from Wimbledon).

If coming by car the venue has a car park, and plenty of on-street parking.

 

We normally perform up to four concerts a year in or around the Merton area although we occasionally venture further afield e.g. a concert tour to Belgium in 2002.

 

There is a 10-15 minute break in the rehearsal for a chance to have a drink, catch up with fellow members, and for any notices to be given out.

 

Over the years, our repertoire has expanded to include many of the greatest names in choral music. It includes masses by  Haydn, Mozart, Puccini and Rossini, requiems by verdi, Brahms, Durufle and Faure, and oratorios by Mendelssohn, Bach, Janacek, Orff, Poulenc, Rachmaninov and Vivaldi. In lighter vein we have sung operattas and opera choruses, as well as jazz classics and songs from shows.
