The Addison Singers is a friendly West London group of choirs founded in 1971.

Oratorio Choir

The Oratorio Choir is a non-auditioned choir open to all singers, performing a standard classical repertoire.

Chamber Choir

The Chamber Choir is an auditioned choir of between 20-30 voices who sing a wide range of classical music.

Jazz Choir

The Jazz Choir is a non-auditioned, all female group who explore jazz songs from the 1930s onwards.

Jazz Ensemble

The Jazz Ensemble is a small auditioned jazz singing group for experienced men and women singers.

Joining the Dots

This Joining the Dots course seeks to unravel the secrets of musical notation.  It will be a basic practical and theoretical guide to how music is written and how it can be read by singers.  Each session will deal with one point about pitch and one point about rhythm and there will be lots of musical examples.  Anyone can join and questions will be welcomed!

Vocal Development

This short Vocal Development Class includes vocal warm-ups, breathing and tuning exercises, and group songs.  Some members, if they wish, prepare short songs or bits of repertoire to perform to the class.  There is no pressure to engage in singing solos. Maximum of 12 in the class.

Vocal Technique

The Vocal Technique class aims to train voices by improving breath control, vocal quality, tuning, rhythm and range extension through various breathing and vocal warm-ups, group songs and performance techniques.  This class provides the experience of singing a solo in a supportive environment. Various techniques are suggested which leads to improvement of the individual’s performance.

Musicianship for Singers

The Musicianship for Singers classes will be interactive classes developing each singer’s confidence in their ability to read, understand and interpret music. We will be learning and analysing music of different periods and styles, looking at the harmonic and stylistic features of up to four pieces which will be sent to singers in an email, before the course starts.
