New Commonwealth Voices

Do you like singing? Are you aged between 18 and 35? Are you from a Commonwealth country or do you have family roots in a Commonwealth country? Would you like to be part of a choir that sings music from around the Commonwealth in a range of languages and styles? If so, you should join this fresh and exciting choir: New Commonwealth Voices, which is being managed by the Royal Commonwealth Society. Our aim is to gather a choir of up to 100 singers with at least one singer from each of the Commonwealth's 53 member countries! You could sing at the Commonwealth Carol Service in St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, in December. You may even have the chance to sing in front of H.M. The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, at the Commonwealth Day Observance in Westminster Abbey. Weekly rehearsals will be held on Mondays from 7 – 9 pm, at the Commonwealth Club, just off Trafalgar Square (near Charing Cross and Embankment stations). Group auditions will be held between 5 – 8 on Monday 28th September, 5th and 12th October. The first rehearsal will be on 26th October. There will be a joining fee of £20 per person. To find out more, and to book your place at a group audition, please contact Christine Cunnold at or 020 7766 9209.
