Joining the Choir

There is more to Pop-Up than just singing! Unlike other choirs, we are a Co-Op so we all get involved in the running of, and direction of the choir. There is a strong sense of community and friendship within the group, and we are honoured to have seen relationships, marriages and babies created since we have been together!

Want to be part of Pop-Up?

We are a 25-30 group of singers singing in 5-part harmony: SAATB as Sopranos, Alto 1s, Alto 2s, Tenors and Bass.

We rehearse every Tuesday evening 7-9pm in one of Kennington’s finest pubs, where the beer is cool and welcome warm!

We have three terms a year that run roughly to the school calendar and Choir subs are £50 a term, or £35 for students/unemployed.

We limit the number of members to 8 per voice part, and we occasionally have spaces for new members who are confident singers able to pick up the repertoire quickly.
