About us

South Bank Singers, founded in 2011, is a SATB chamber choir of about 30 singers which seeks to develop as an ensemble singing a repertoire of both sacred and secular music with varying degrees of challenge. 


Choir members are expected to have a sound ability to read music and be prepared to undertake some work outside rehearsals. 


To support the development of the choir, members have a voice assessment to ensure the Musical Director has a clear sense of the potential, range and blend and can suggest ways singers may improve. 


The choir aims to have three concerts a year and contributes to the carol service of a local church. 


Rather than charging for concerts, the choir has a retiring collection a large proportion of which is given to local charities as selected by the choir. 

Our founder and Honorary President is John Guest.
