Singing in London - My Story
Singing in London was conceived from a passion for singing and a desire to inspire the world to sing together.
‘I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing in Perfect Harmony’ by The Carpenters is my ethos.
Singing in London first opened its doors in 2006 in Highgate, North London as a place for local parents to come together and sing. A charity show followed shortly afterwards to raise funds for The Whittington Hospital. The show was performed in the Grand Atrium of the new hospital wing receiving huge acclaim to a packed audience of patients and guests.
Before long, there was an influx of newly inspired singers and as a result in 2011 Singing in London opened a second branch in Islington, Central London, to accommodate new members. A vibrant hub for singers emerged from an array of multi-national and cultural backgrounds who wowed audiences with spectacular musical renditions of Les Miserables and Mamma Mia for a performance period running over two years.
The Highgate Branch of Singing in London continued to grow from strength to strength and in September 2015 moved to East Finchley. The first Open Evening was a tremendous success, with a flood of local residents who enjoyed and engaged in renditions of songs from the musical “Mack and Mabel” with great vigour and enthusiasm.
