SHE Choir London

About

SHE Choir London is a collaborative women’s pop choir based in London singing original arrangements of pop, rock, r&b and more. We put our unique spin on favourites from Destiny’s Child to Fleetwood Mac (with a bit of Alice Cooper along the way)!

We’ve sung at festivals, weddings and even teamed up with our pals in Chaps choir. In 2018 we performed on Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, celebrating the amazing women in the music industry making up the 2018 Power List. We’ve also been a regular fixture at the Women of the World festival at the Southbank Centre.

If you’re looking for a choir for your event or gig you can book us. For more information, get in touch!

Join us

It’s true – joining a choir is good for the soul.

SHE Choir London is open to all self-identifying women in London. No auditions, no fees.

Sadly, we aren’t accepting new members right now – in order to commit to keeping SHE Choir London totally free, we rely on rehearsal space given to us by the wonderful Star of Kings pub, which means spaces are limited.

You can sign up to our waiting list here: SHE Choir London Waiting List.

While we can’t tell you how long the wait will be, we tend to do intakes once or twice a year.

Access Requirements

Our rehearsal space is only accessible via a flight of stairs. Due to budget restrictions, we can’t afford a more accessible space. If you know of any accessible locations in Central London which would be willing to let us rehearse for free once a week on a Monday evening, please get in touch!


Our ethos

We’re unique because we are collaborative

The choir is open to and encourages active participation from all members, from leading the physical and vocal warm up to conducting and arranging songs or organising gigs. We try to foster a non-judgemental and open space where everyone feels able to have a go, regardless of experience.

We’re unique because we are free

We don’t think cost should be a barrier to being part of the choir and so we’re committed to being open to all members of our community.

We’re unique because we teach as well as learn

We don’t audition members, as we believe in keeping the choir open access and available to all self-identifying women of any age. We create a learning environment where talent is nurtured through regular skills workshops and an annual residential weekend, where choir members are able to learn vocal techniques, take part in arranging songs and participating in confidence building and performance exercises.

Our History

Founded in Manchester in 2010 by three music students, SHE Choir moved to the capital in 2012 and became a collaborative endeavour in 2014. Rehearsals began with 6 people in living rooms from Brockley to Olympia, before moving to a yurt in a North London skip garden. We now have a 60 strong membership in London and are hosted by the lovely Star of Kings pub in King’s Cross. SHE Choir has branches across the UK and elsewhere – see the SHE Choir Network for our sister choirs!
