We work together to create music

Choir_rehearsal
Who are we?

We are a friendly, community choir based in the London Borough of Havering. We are now into our thirteenth year and are hoping to continue improving and developing.

The choir is led by our musical director - Enid Weaver.
A variety of musical genres and styles is covered by the choir and we work towards two sets of performances a year, a Summer Concert and a Christmas Concert.

Our members represent a variety of ages, backgrounds and musical abilities and are drawn from the local area around Havering. There is one thing we all share - a love of singing.

Word cloud on choirs

Choir members are encouraged to practice at home using the on-line rehearsal recordings and/or the USB Memory stick that is provided for each concert.
This helps those of us who do not read music.

Why join a choir?
Prescribe singing instead of drugs, urges GP

A GP has called for doctors to prescribe singing as an alternative to medicine.

Dr Simon Opher, Clinical Lead for social prescribing in Gloucestershire, said he sees patients less often if they join a music group or a choir because singing has a wide range of health and social benefits.
Music therapy has already been used successfully in care homes for those with dementia and singing can also help people with Parkinson's disease. Dr Opher, from Gloucestershire, told the Cheltenham Science Festival:
People see me less if they start singing.
