I joined in May this year. I was apprehensive going on my own, but I needn't have been. Everyone was very welcoming. We have such a lot of fun and you really do have a sense of well-being afterwards.
- D Lye (Wednesday morning choir)
No audition, no need to read music - just fun, a sense of wellbeing that lasts the whole week! A great group of people and it's all for charity. I wish I'd joined earlier
- S Thomas - Thursday choir at East Barnet School
I joined the choir at the beginning of January 2017.
Singing at the top of my voice, knowing that whilst I'm enjoying myself I'm contributing to a most worthwhile cause and making new friends with others who inspire me, is fantastic!
Don't hesitate, come and join our friendly group!

I think I speak for both choirs - we love being members of The Big Choir London (Barnet and Winchmore Hill)!!! Singing, Great Music, Friendships and Laughter!! On the serious side, making money to fight this terrible condition through the Cancer Research UK and the Francis Crick Institute London. It is an honour to be a choir member and I thank “my lucky stars” that I found the choir, orchestrated by Sharon and Andy Downs. It has lifted me from a bad place. Now singing together concentrates the mind, makes great music and we LAUGH together. Thank you to everyone at The Big Choir London.

I love being part of The Big Choir - the people, the music, the practising and the good stress of being put in a position where one has to focus and do a myriad of things well. I get to have a hobby and give to a very worthy cause too - a win win all round !!
The Big Choir came into my life like a breeze and then whipped up a whirlwind! I love it and I get to sing with great people AND we make money for cancer research. Roll on autumn and more events plus Christmas Carols!!
Having seen The Big Choir advertised, I plucked up the courage to go along to a session just over a year ago, and I haven't looked back since. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and I have discovered the joy of singing as part of a group. It has truly enriched my life and I have gained some lovely friends too. Every week I leave the session with such a buzz. If you are thinking about joining – go for it. You won't regret it!

I have always enjoyed singing but never felt I was good enough to be in a choir. Having plucked up the courage to go to The Big Choir my confidence has grown and I've learned lots about harmonies and singing together. Most of all I have had so much fun! Everyone is friendly and encouraging and makes singing together a truly enjoyable experience. Whatever type of stress I might arrive with after a day of work, after an hour of singing with these guys I am smiling and happy! Thanks Sara and Sharon!
