This choir is a community venture to unite Idlers and locals from the surrounding community. Terms have been increased from eight weeks to ten, to allow more time to perfect our skills. All are welcome and no previous choral experience is necessary.
Tom Williams is one of London’s top choirmasters, based at St Martin’s in The Fields, and while he’ll be teaching you seriously The Idler choir is informal and a lot of fun.
At the end of term we will perform a concert for friends and family in collaboration with The Idler Academy Ensemble Ukulele Group.
For those of you who are new to The Idler Academy, we are a school and offer online and real-world courses in the classical liberal arts and practical skills.
The choir master as always for this exciting community venture will be established choral director Tom Williams. He will lead a fun and engaging introduction to choral singing, exploring music ranging from 12th century chants to The Beatles and The Beach Boys.
Tom will be joined by guest members of his professional early music group, The Erebus Ensemble, and special guest conductors to add their insights into the wonderful world of choral singing. Whether you’re an experienced singer or completely new to the idea, you’re bound to find something of interest in this varied repertory.
