Many choirs break for at least part of the summer, but at Capital Chorus we like to keep the fun going, making the best of the weather to take our performances to people enjoying the sunshine.

In June we were delighted to be invited to sing for crowds in South-West London attending the annual fair in the picturesque village of Ham. The first Sunday in July found many of our singers down at London’s oldest allotment site, entertaining hundreds of green-fingered growers and their families and friends for the annual open day at Northfields Allotments in West Ealing. The sun shone brightly and we had a fantastic time. (Watch video here). Our thanks to all those who stopped to listen and have a chat, including the local MP Rupa Huq.

The fun continues during August when many of us will be visiting Nottingham University for the annual Harmony College weekend organised by the British Association of Barbershop Singers. On September 1st the chorus will gather for our first ever summer picnic. And to close our the season we’ve a real highlight on September 22nd, when we provide an evening of musical entertainment at OSO Barnes. Click here for tickets, and whatever you do, enjoy the Summer sun.
