There’s a lovely local choir that you may not yet have heard of but that welcomes anyone with a love of singing – why not give it a go?
The Friends of Thomson House (FOTH) Choir is a community choir, founded in February 2017 by two parents of children who attend Thomson House School – Charlie Horsley and Andrea Carney. Their objective was to develop a community choir that brings parents, friends, teachers and supporters of the school together, as well as members of the wider community, through singing and everyone really is welcome!
Charlie, the choir’s leader and conductor, is an opera singer and graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, and Andrea is its co-ordinator. They are both volunteers. Their aim to create a repertoire that everyone can enjoy, with music from a variety of genres. You can find videos of some of performances on their Facebook page.
Choir rehearsals take place every Wednesday evening, from 8 – 9pm during school term time at the Thomson House School Hall, Vernon Road, East Sheen SW14 8NH
Becoming a member
No auditions or previous experience of singing in a choir is necessary, just a love of singing. If you would like a free taster session or to join please email Charlie and Andrea at FOTH-Choir@hotmail.com with your name, mobile phone number and preferred email address.
Is there a cost?
You can ‘Pay as You Sing’ for £6 a week or buy 6 FOTH Choir Credits for £34 (£5.75 per session). As Andrea and Charlie want the choir to be inclusive, please speak to or email them in confidence if you would like to join, but cannot afford to ‘pay as you sing’.
