Singing in the Brunel Tunnel entrance hall

Our last concert for the summer on 16 July 2017 was held in the wonderfully atmospheric Grand Entrance Hall of the Brunel Tunnel, Rotherhithe. Here are some pictures, which we think convey what a lovely evening was had.

Thanks so much to the Brunel Museum for hosting us, and to Midnight Apothecary for serving delicious cocktails in the roof garden!

Nepal Benefit Concert, 13 July 2015

Our next concert is on Monday 13 July 2015, 8pm at St Mary’s Church, Stoke Newington Church Street.

We are joining together with the Cecil Sharp House Choir, the Pete Cooper London Fiddle Group and other virtuoso musicians, under the direction of Sally Davies, to raise money to support earthquake victims in Nepal. See full details in the flyer posted below.

It would be great if all of the Wing-It Singers’ friends, fans and families could support this event – which takes the place of our summer concert this year.

Please note, this concert is being held in the bigger, Victorian church, not the small one we’ve previously had concerts in… There is much more capacity in the larger church, so we’re hoping for a big audience and lots of money raised for a good cause. There will be wine and soft drinks available during the interval.

Please come and support this musical extravaganza – and bring your friends!

Free lunchtime concert, 6th July

The Wing-It Singers will be joining another choir, Hackney Voices, on Saturday 6th July 2013.

As part of the St John at Hackney church fête, we will be performing at a free lunchtime concert from 1-2pm. Expect some exhilarating harmonies as we sing a cappella songs from Georgia, Spain, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, the African continent… and England!

South of the river on Saturday!

Chumleigh Gardens

Chumleigh Gardens

The Wing-It Singers will be venturing South Of The River (eek!) next Saturday 8th June.

We will be doing two performances of mostly crunchy Eastern European harmonies to complement / compete with the tranquillity of Chumleigh Gardens, in Burgess Park. It’s all part of Open Garden Squares Weekend (and also linked to the Chelsea Fringe.)

Details here www.opensquares.org/detail/Chumleigh.html

And more details about the full programme here: www.southwark.gov.uk/events/event/2488/ (Yes! It says we’ll be “singing music from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean”!)

As far as we know, we will be singing at 12.45 and and 13.45. And it looks like the weather will be fine. So dig out your sunglasses, come and listen!

It’s free, and pretty informal – you can wander in and out as you feel like it, and enjoy the gardens.
