CHOIRS R US IN BARNET
Choirs R Us is a lively, friendly choir in Barnet for adults and young people of all singing abilities. We sing pop, soul and gospel songs in harmony. There’s no audition and no need to be able to read music as the songs are taught by ear. You’ll learn how to control your voice through vocal and breathing techniques and have great fun along the way.
We have nearly 100 choir members from the borough of Barnet who sing their hearts out every Monday evening, and it’s a great way to make new friends while expressing yourself through the music.
Choirs R Us is unique in that it is specifically tailored to the group of singers each term. Choir members have the opportunity to put forward song ideas, sing solo parts and make suggestions along the way – an equally rewarding experience for both complete beginners, and accomplished singers.
The choir was set up and is directed by Jenny Bennett, a highly experienced and inspirational choir director and professional musician from Barnet, accompanied by her skilled keyboardist.
We rehearse on Monday evenings 7.30-9.00pm at Wesley Hall, 9 Stapylton Road, Barnet EN5 4JJ. Click here to see a map.
Come along to a Free Taster Session on the first week of term or a 'Drop In' session for just £10 on the 2nd week to try it out. For term dates, please click here.
Who we are
Welcome to Choirs R Us! These dynamic choirs are for Barnet adults and young people who love to sing. It may just be in the shower or at karaoke, or you may be an experienced singer. Either way, it’s an opportunity to take part in an amazing musical experience.
As a choir director for many years I’ve seen how singing can transform our lives and reach us on a deep emotional level. These choirs aim to bring people together in a positive and supportive way, working as a team towards a common purpose – to make fabulous music!
Come and sing some of your favourite pop, soul and gospel songs in a friendly and lively environment. No audition and no need to read music.
