"This is the best ongoing musical experience of my life"
Member of Cecil Sharp House Choir
The Choir is for confident singers over the age of 16 who are able to hold a tune, willing to memorise song lyrics and vocal parts, and committed to performing. There's no need to read music as all songs are taught by ear and performed from memory.
We do not hold auditions although due to the popularity of the choir it can sometimes take a term or two before a space becomes available.

Autumn Term 2019
Current choir members are given a priority booking period to enrol onto the Autumn term. After this priority booking period has passed, any remaining choir places will be made available on a first come, first served basis to anyone wishing to join the choir.
From Thursday 18 July, an online booking link for joining the Cecil Sharp House Choir's Summer Term will be published on this page. Bookings from this date can also be made in person at the Box Office or over the phone on 020 7485 2206.
We currently run two other singing groups you may be interested in: our Song class and the Monday Folk Choir Workshops. Many of those waiting to join the Cecil Sharp House Choir attend one or both of these classes.
Refunds: all courses are non-refundable unless the course is cancelled by EFDSS.
