The evening choir started in April 2014 as a Women's Institute choir and evolved into a 40 strong mixed community choir with members from all walks of life.
We pride ourselves on our welcoming environment, eclectic repertoire and the amount of laughter that accompanies our rehearsals.
In September 2017 Sing17 started a day choir for people who required or preferred to sing in the daylight hours.
Sing17 is very much made up of local people of different ages and abilities. We love to collaborate with other community groups whether it's a choir festival, care home singalong or local event.
Laura Forbes - Choir Founder & Leader
I am an experienced choir leader and musician working with a diverse range of community groups in Waltham Forest and Haringey.
My passion is making music accessible and invigorating to people of varying abilities. I strive to create a nurturing and relaxed environment for the choirs which is perfect to overcome any singing hang ups or inhibitions. The effect means members leave the sessions feeling uplifted and bonded with other members. There is a strong sense of unity in Sing17 and this creates great music and high quality performances!
Anne is first to welcome new members to the choirs and fill them in on what's what. Along with helping with the admin, Anne has moved the choirs from strength to strength by suggesting charities we can fundraise for, approaching communities to collaborate with and making sure Sing17 are on the gig map! We have raised over £3500 for charity over the last five years.
