Welcome to the All Aloud Community Choir

Welcome to our website!

We are community choir for everyone in and around the Leatherhead area.

The aim of the choir is simply to give people who like sing an opportunity to do so, together with others.
No auditions and no previous singing experience necessary. Just come and have a go!

We don't use music scores, instead we learn by ear and the leader's hand guidance.
As a "Natural Voice" choir, we mostly sing unaccompanied and in 2, 3 or 4 parts.
Occassionally we perform at community events such as in the Swan Centre.

In normal times, we meet on most Tuesday evenings (term times), 6:30pm - 8pm,
at Kingscroft Chapel, Kingscroft Road, Leatherhead, KT22 7BU.

We are not able to meet together in person at the moment due to the current restrictions
so we have moved online!

Tuesdays 7pm-8pm on Zoom. Get in touch for details.

All Aloud! is a non-profit community group.

We are also on Facebook as "All Aloud Community Choir Leatherhead".

 In Memorium

We are desperately sad that we have now lost three of our menfolk to Covid-19:
Sandy Crouch, Peter Brown and Martin Rolls.
May they find comfort in singing with the angels.
See the tributes and memories of long-term members Martin and Sandy on the additional pages.

Peter had only came along to the choir for parts of 2019, interupted by an illness. He really wanted to sing but struggled with increasing deafness that made it difficult for him. He was a keen Liverpool supporter and his cap sometimes triggered friendly football related banter.

 

 







FAQs
  • What does it cost?

    As a non-profit, inclusive, community organisation, All Aloud! wants to make it easy for anyone to sing with us.
    Our fees cover the cost of hiring a choir leader and our donations for the premises.

    The first session is free, thereafter we normally ask for £27 a half term. Anyone ona low income is welcome to approach the Chair or Treasurer confidentially and we will try to be sympathetic within our means.

    As we don't use scores, there are no additional fees for music.


  • What do you sing?

    We sing a wide variety of songs which are suitable for singing unaccompanied and in simple parts.
    Popular songs from a range of eras, folk, gospel, African, classical and, of course, Christmas and seasonal songs.

    Generally we have the words but we aim to learn them if we can as the more heads that are up the better for the sound and any audience.

    Not everything will be to the liking of everyone all the time but as we typically work on 3-4 pieces each evening (over a number of weeks), we hope there will be enough variety for everyone to enjoy most of them!
