Sing Out! Choir for parents, friends, staff and governors

The Sing Out! Choir for Parents, Friends, Staff and Governors sings all styles of music – from Mozart to Queen! The choir has performed at different venues including the Albert Hall, Twickenham Stadium and John Lewis Kingston and they sing regularly at our school concerts at St Richard Reynolds and St Mary’s University chapel, Strawberry Hill.

During Easter term 2019 the choir will be focusing on gospel music and songs from the shows, and in the summer the choir will join forces with secondary students and primary pupils from across the borough to sing timeless choral classics, including Jesu joy of Man’s Desiring, Zadok the Priest and Fauré‘s Cantique de Jean Racine.

The choir rehearses 6.30-7.45pm at St Richard Reynolds on Tuesdays during term time, £4 per session or £35 per term. Choir membership fees fund choir costs and further music projects for the College and community. All are welcome, just turn up. No experience necessary. For more info please contact Caroline Firman at c.firman@srrcc.org.uk.

  1. I look forward to SRRCC choir evenings as the sessions are friendly and good fun. There’s no pressure to be a great singer which makes the sessions relaxed. I’ve learnt a great deal about music, met some lovely people and enjoyed singing.
