Singing For Pleasure is the most successful charity fund-raising choir in Hertfordshire.
Founded in November 1980 by musical directors Cliff and Glynis Rogers, it was the first ever community choir in the area and has gone from strength to strength, gaining local and national awards.
Glynis & Cliff realised that there were a lot of people locally who would like to sing in a choir but were put off from joining because of the audition process that was prevalent in all the local choirs and amateur dramatic societies.
With this in mind, Glynis and Cliff took away the audition process to join Singing For Pleasure.
They were the first to do this in 1980, and it has been copied by most of the local choirs and musical societies since. But it was their bravery and forethought that led to Singing For Pleasure being the very first to achieve this. Something that Glynis still believes in to this day.
The choir’s wide repertoire ranges from the easy-listening genre, including lively
arrangements from popular entertainment, to joyous light classics and choral music.
We rehearse every Friday (during term time) between 8pm & 10pm at
St. John the Evangelist Church, Monks Rise, Knightsfield, Welwyn Garden City, AL8 7NF
Closer to concert time, we do have extra rehearsals scheduled (usually on Tuesday evenings)
Singing For Pleasure would love to hear from anyone for has a passion for singing. We have an open door policy from 16 to 160!
We remain the cheapest and most value for money choir in the whole of Hertfordshire.
The ability to read music is not necessary, all we ask is a willingness to learn.
