About us

GS LOGO

The Gallery Singers are a auditioned Brixton based choir who rehearse on a Thursday evening. We formed in May 2010 with the ambition to create a young, enthusiastic choir, with a professional etiquette and a real passion for singing. What has emerged is a mix of old acquaintances and new friends, all keen to make beautiful music and have a well-deserved post-rehearsal pint.

 

‘The Gallery Singers have a relaxed, savvy fluency that is very good news for the English Choral tradition’

We perform 3 concerts per year (each with a themed repertoire) and we occasionally busk around London too.

Highlight and sell-out gigs:

  • Evensong at Salisbury Cathedral
  • Spirituals in the tunnel
  • Lux Aeterna (Lauridsen)
  • Overground Underground – in The Brunel Tunnel which featured popular tunes of the 1960s.
  • The Power of Poetry – music based on poems including works by Whitacre, Chatman and Vaughan Williams.
  • The Battle of Jericho – a concert based around Negro Spirituals and Jazz which included music by Nina Simone and Moses Hogan.
  • Christmas concert in aid of Save the Children – a concert which raised over £500 for Save the Children
