This is the website of the Fleet Singers. We are an amateur choir, open to all. There are no auditions, you do not need any singing experience or the ability to read music. The only requirement is enthusiasm!
The choir is open to those who live or work in South End Green, Gospel Oak and the Hampstead area.

During the Summer Term we've been singing together on Zoom every week, led by our Choir Director Phil. We've been singing favourites from past concerts, singing along to backing tracks created by Phil and Philip with all the parts pre-recorded, and learning new light and upbeat songs to keep our spirits up. We've created a "virtual performance" video which we are submitting to feature in a Making Music virtual concert.
The Fleet Singers are working Howard Goodall's Eternal Light Requiem this spring term. We sang the Lachrymosa "Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep" from this Requiem at our Remembrance Concert in November and are looking forward to exploring the full work.
Refreshments from 5.30pm before the 6pm performance.
We will be resuming meetings in September, we will keep abreast of the guidelines and try to hold them in real space if possible but if not, will resume on Zoom. Please check our Facebook page and Twitter feed for the latest info.
From the day after the Remembrance concert, Monday 11th November, we will work on our Christmas repertoire. Thursday 5th December we will be singing at Highbury and Islington Station with Choirs For Change (supporting Health Poverty Action) from 7-8pm and Sunday 15th December we will be taking part in the Carol Service at Gospel Oak Methodist Church who so generously host our rehearsals each Monday. The carol service is followed by carol singing in local streets raising money for Action for Children.
