WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY

  • A glorious heart lifting sound, I am privileged to be a member of Hackney Community Gospel Choir!

    John
    Choir Member
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my first week with the Community Choir. Everyone was so friendly, the choice of music was inspiring, and the rehearsal was tremendous fun. I also felt that the sounds achieved by us all in such a short space of time were exciting, can't wait for our next rehearsal.

    Fatou
    Choir Member
  • I suffered loneliness problems and found an hour singing in the choir once a week a real godsend, it takes me out of my problems & makes me feel normal again. I especially like the joviality of it all.

  • The HCGC gives an excellent opportunity for people to get together and sing whatever their ability or age and all that is required is that you enjoy singing!!

    Claude
    Choir Coordinator
  • I look forward to choir each week training. It is uplifting and makes me feel good. For the sound that others hear, you need an expert like Anu to guide patiently and encourage you to bring out the best in your voice.

    Phyllis
    Choir Member
  • I would say that the Community Choir has given many of us confidence to do something we never thought possible; it brings friendship, fun, laughter, and a greater knowledge of music. Anu on and Claude have done an excellent job keeping the momentum.

    Sam
    Choir Member
  • Being a member of the Community Choir is inexpensive and brings a real sense of camaraderie, togetherness and fun. It also helps you to listen, be focused and builds your confidence through teamwork. People are there for a talk if you need to speak.

    Kate
    Choir Member
  • I sing in my church, but I needed to learn the techniques of singing good melodies the Hackney Community Gospel Choir has brought to us. I am enjoying it.

    Marilene
    Choir Member
  • My children were so proud to see me sing at the first choir concert on December 10th 2015, that I felt joy in them coming to support me. What I like about the choir they are so relaxed and accommodate continually.

    Delia
    Choir Member
  • The members are very encouraging, I push them and do not treat them any less than The Reapers Choir or any other professional choir. After only 9 hours, they were having a concert in front of friends and families… what talents! I'm glad to be part of this project.

    Choir Director
