Maybe you have always fancied singing but thought that there just didn't seem to be the right sort of choir for you. Too classical, too pretentious, too cliquey, too stuffy, too old, too difficult!
Well all that changed in 2009 when New Egham Singers was formed
A choir that rehearses in a relaxed social atmosphere and has fun every week
A mixed choir of all ages from early twenties upwards
A choir that sings tuneful music of every kind. Songs from the shows, folk songs from around the world, light classics, spirituals, pop songs, old songs, new songs. If it has a tune, we sing it
A choir that has donated many thousands of pounds to locally based charities
A choir that is run by its members for its members
A choir that doesn't require auditions
A choir that welcomes people who are new to singing, or maybe returning to singing after some years, or even complete novices
New Egham Singers is the choir for you
We previously met at The Easter Centre attached to St John's Church, Egham, but from September to December 2021 we will be rehearsing at Manorcroft School, Wesley Drive, Egham from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on Monday evenings during term time (see below for information on current COVID-19 restrictions). Membership fees of £65 are paid termly, but NES welcomes annual payments (£195) as this helps with the choir’s financial planning and security. Fees are payable by the second week of each term (if paying termly) and preferably online. Please speak to our Membership Secretary if you have any questions.
Under the direction and tuition of Guy Bunce, well-known local composer, musician and conductor (www.guybunce.co.uk) New Egham Singers learns and rehearses tuneful music in the lighter vein.
To join contact our Membership Secretary, Francesca Shelley NES.Membership@edcs.org.uk. In normal circumstances you would be able to just turn up to a rehearsal, but as our Covid measures require pre-screening, we ask that prospective members contact the Membership Secretary if they are interested in joining.
The committee of NES is delighted to announce that we will return to in-person, indoor rehearsals on Monday 6th September. For more information, please email NES@edcs.org.uk
