We are a friendly bunch of people who get together to sing.
Actually there is a bit more to it than that.
We sing at about 12 -15 events per year, such as festivals, fêtes, weddings, funerals, and of course concerts.
Our repertoire includes a very wide range of music, not just traditional gospels and spirituals, but African songs, modern songs and standards. They are usually arranged specially for us by our director Penny Hastings in 4 part harmony.
Anyone can join.
There are no auditions!
You don't have to be a brilliant singer either
Best of all there are no fees! (but we do accept donations to pay for the rehearsal hall)
Hear us sing
You don't have to be able to read music
We normally meet for practice on Monday evenings 7:45-10.00 during school term times at
Central Hall, St. Mary St. Southampton SO14 1NF
We are in the Small Hall on the left of the picture. Access is through the back door which is in the car park on St. Mary St.
It's fun. Apart from singing there is tea and biscuits and sometimes cake as well
If you want to sing with us or perhaps book us to sing at your event, please

In keeping with government advice about suspending non-essential social contact, we will not be meeting as usual.
Many in the choir think that singing is actually essential to one's health,so we are practicing:
On Monday 16th March we met at the Central Hall, only 8 of us, and obediently stayed 2m apart.
Sadly there's no picture of this.
Since then we have been meetign for weekly chats on the Zoom video-conference platform.
We are working on recording a few songs with each singer in isolation using the Soundtrap website
and Audacity audio
In due course
these will appear here
Most events at which we were to sing have been cancelled or postponed. See the Calendar page for up-to-date details.
Until then, here is a gospel song to keep you entertained.
The song planned to change each week.
