Community Choirs


We are currently meeting ONLINE!

Tuesday Eve – 6.45pm – 8.15pm

Sophie has tailored her Community Choir sessions to work online over Zoom. She teaches simple, heart warming and uplifting songs in harmony.

Both of Sophie’s Community Choirs – Corinium and Painswick – meet together for the same online session on Tuesday evening’s. Please get in touch with Sophie via the CONTACT page if you are interesting in joining the sessions. Thanks! 

Singing in harmony with others has become a such a popular activity and community choirs are thriving! As the words of my choral compositions Dawn Chorus indicate, we are “…rising up like a dawn chorus, shaping the landscape with song.” If you would you like to be a part of this growing song-line, come and join our song!

We usually meet on the following days, times and venue shown below and intend to return to meeting in person as soon as it is safe to do so. Please click the link for more info on each Choir below…

Sophie is a member of the NVN – Natural Voice Network – and believes in the principle that singing is for everyone – if you have a voice, you can sing. A ‘natural voice’ is the one you were born with – unique and ready to be sung.

“I believe that singing with others is good for the heart, body and soul and can leave you feeling uplifted and energised. Being part of a community choir is a hugely rewarding and fun social experience.”  ♫ ♩ ♬ ♪  ♫ ♩ ♬
