what we believe in
WE BELIEVE THAT
Singing is for everyone
We’re leading a community singing revolution in the UK. Say goodbye to old-fashioned musical terminology, stuffy choir directors and intimating sheet music 👋. Sing Now Choir is a contemporary, fresh and uplifting community where members grow and most importantly, feel at home.
We're big on our ethos of positivity, inclusivity and no judgement.
Our musical arrangements
You won’t hear harmonies, medleys, mashups and remixes like ours in any other choir. Our superior arrangements are all created in-house and are truly unique. We aim to step away from standard (and sometimes predictable!) choir songs.
We broke the mould when we decided not to stick to a term time schedule. We meet all year round, observing the occasional Rest Week. You'll most likely find that we rehearse more than big choir chains in the UK and never stop singing for big summer breaks.
Fun & laughter
We create a relaxed rehearsal environment where members never feel embarrassed to make a ‘mistake’. Sing Now is a feeling. Inclusivity, no judgement and lots of laughter.
Come on, nobody enjoys an audition!? We are open to everyone and stick to this ethos wholeheartedly. You may find other choirs have ‘no audition process’ but will then ask you to sing a few scales before you join or put you through a trial period. We just don’t work like that.
We’ve modernised what ‘going to choir’ really means, with an ambition to have friends mentioning Sing Now like they’re attending a weekly gym class for some much needed me-time and a hefty wellness boost!
We believe that everybody deserves the opportunity to experience the Sing Now buzz and so we commit to reasonable pricing when it comes to our membership. Whilst alternative choirs may ask you to pay a yearly membership fee upfront, we simply charge a monthly membership fee that can be cancelled at any time.
Every little thing...
Itʼs just so much more fun than other choirs Iʼve been in, from the way it's run, to the fantastic group of people that attend, every little element is right!
The choir is so so friendly, supportive and encouraging. Sing Now has broadened my friendship group and introduced me to people I might never have met. I love that there is a mixed age group. We learn so much from each other!
If you enjoy singing, come along for a free taster session and give it a go, you really have nothing to lose. We're a very friendly bunch and you'll soon get swept along in the fun of the session.
