SingCR0nise – New Addington’s Community Choir

PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS, SINGCR0NISE REHEARSALS ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD

SingCROnise is New Addington’s Community Choir.

Established in November 2008, the choir now has a membership in the region of 60 people, although around 30-40 sing regularly with the choir.

It is open to anyone over the age of 18 and also to children in school year 7 and above when accompanied by a parent/guardian.

It’s free of charge and rehearsals take place at New Addington Leisure Centre, on most Sundays during term time, from 4.30pm – 5.30pm. (check below for rehearsal dates or email matt.spencer@salvationarmy.org.uk to confirm whether a rehearsal is taking place on a particular week)

The choir sings a range of music, from contemporary Gospel (Mary, Mary, Kirk Franklin, Israel Houghton) to Pop/Rock (Michael Jackson, Adele, Bill Withers etc.) to songs from the Shows!

SingCROnise is a choir for all abilities. If you’ve never sung before or if you just can’t stop singing, you’ll fit right in. Songs are taught by rote – that is, you don’t need to be able to read music or even words. Many of our members have been amazed at how they’ve progressed from feeling nervous initially to confidently singing in 3 part harmony!

The choir is led by Matt Spencer (NASA Community Church leader), who firmly believes that SingCROnise’s priority number 1 is having a good time. Rehearsals are fun with lots of laughter (and occasionally even cakes and sweets!).

Choir members come from a variety of different backgrounds. Some go to church, some don’t; some are confident singers, some are slowly growing in confidence. What they have in common is a love of singing with others.

There’s nothing quite like the uplifting feeling of singing with a choir, and we think there’s no better way to start the week than with a SingCROnise rehearsal!

Why not come along and give it a try?

2020  Rehearsal Dates: PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE NO PHYSICAL REHEARSALS CURRENTLY SCHEDULED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS. REHEARSALS WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE VIA ZOOM ON FRIDAYS AT 7PM
