How to join the South London Singers


Join our South London choir


Whether you’re a soprano, alto, tenor or bass, we’d love to welcome you to join our group.

We sing from sheet music, so experience of singing in choral groups and the ability to read music are desirable. However, if you’re a good singer but not confident at sight-reading, we’d always suggest you try out a couple of rehearsals and see what you think.

The main requirement is to be enthusiastic about singing and to enjoy our repertoire of choral classics.

You won’t be auditioned as we hope most singers will have a sense of whether or not the SLS is right for them.

We welcome any prospective singers to come along and try the choir out for free.

Once you’ve decided to join us, full-time members will be asked to pay our standard subcription fees of £240 a year. These are to cover the costs of our rehearsal space, accompanists and musical direction, and can be paid either annually or by term (£80 per term – Sept-Dec; Jan-March; April-July).

Our three terms follow the academic year with short breaks over Christmas and Easter and a long summer break from July – September.

Prospective new members can come along to any Monday evening rehearsal and try us out. Here’s our current rehearsal schedule.
