It's been an amazing year so far! 

We kicked off with a new choir in St Albans, which is now over 70 members strong, and sounding unbelievably good considering they've only been singing together for 6 months.  This group alone has raised £10,000 between January and July.

Our Barnet choir is also doing very well, with membership slowly increasing each month following a big drop during the Covid pandemic.  Many members have now returned to sing each week, other's have relocated to other parts of the country, and some are still a little nervous to be surrounded by people again.  We completely understand the anxiety relating to the past couple of years, but I'm happy to say that we are booming 💓  

Following several performances, and our monthly subscriptions from members, plus other fundraising, we are delighted to announce that our donation to the Francis Crick Institute now stands at an amazing £200,000!  And we haven't once asked anyone to 'sponsor' us which is how a lot of fundraising works.  We think that you should have a lot of fun if you're handing over your cash each month.  Thankfully it's what we've achieved for the past 6 years and we hope it will continue for many years to come.

We have space available at both choirs for new members, so why not get in touch to book your free taster!  All you have to do is write to sharon@thebigchoir.org and she'll get you registered.  You need no experience at all.  We're looking for some men too so please, don't be shy.  You will receive a very warm welcome!

We're currently on our summer break, getting ready to start again on Tuesday 6th September in St Albans and on Thursday 8th in Barnet.  We have a great term to look forward to, leading up to lots of Christmas cheer, including parties.  If you think it's something you'd enjoy, please get in touch.  

We look forward to hearing from you.
