The Southwest Songbirds Online

Despite social distancing and the unprecedented challenges that the coronavirus pandemic faces us all with, The Southwest Songbirds (Earlsfield’s favourite ladies’ choir) have still been rehearsing for our summer concert, only now we’ve taken it online! Our repertoire offers our usual mix of music, with something for everyone, and ranges from Gustav Holst’s Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda (a lovely and unusual classical piece) through to Adele’s Skyfall from the Bond film, along with another Bond favourite, Diamonds are Forever, and also includesEdward Elgar and even Billy Joel – and there’s more to come.

We’ll be rehearsing using Zoom, with pre-recorded guide tracks and our musical director, Polly May, conducting us live once a week! Once we’ve all learnt the repertoire we’ll be recording ourselves singing and Polly will work her magic to pull together a virtual concert which everyone can enjoy online. Every concert we do raises money for a really good cause and this one’s no different – we’re raising money for Shelter, the homelessness charity, who help millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support and legal services, and who have experienced a sharp increase in the number of calls for help during the coronavirus crisis, from people worried about losing their jobs, their homes and keeping their family safe.

So, if you’re a soprano, second soprano or alto and interested in joining us, the more the merrier, as up to 100 people can join the 40-minute sessions allowed by the free Zoom download. The cost for the term is £50 per household, and proceeds (after costs) from this subscription will be donated to the charity.

All you need to do is…

be able to read music - sign up  by emailing swsongbirds@gmail.combe able to download Zoom on a laptop or tablet (we’ll send you instructions) - be able to access Dropbox from the link we’ll send you to download the music and backing tracks

Please pass this on to anyone you think might like to join, and if you have more than one Songbird in your household, mothers / daughters / sisters / housemates are welcome to join in – subscription is per household!

The Southwest Songbirds is a friendly and fun, all-female community-based choir, in Earlsfield.

Our musical director, Polly May, set up the choir in 2013 to bring together women from South West London to sing a varied repertoire, both secular and sacred, at two concerts a year. The choir rehearses and performs at St Andrew’s Church, on the corner of Garratt Lane and Waynflete Street in Earlsfield SW18.

Our winter concerts feature seasonal and Christmassy-music and never fail to get everyone in the festive spirit! Our summer concerts are very varied and have featured modern choral favourites, songs from the musicals, pop songs, and classical choral pieces, to name but a few. We choose a different charity / good cause to support with every concert, and have raised funds for many different good causes, including Get Further, Hackney Pirates, Sound Minds, Housing for Women, Ben Thapa Foundation, Just Shelter, stem4, Gutsy Gastros, First Touch, Earlsfield Foodbank, SANE, Somerset Flood Funds, Philippines Typhoon Fund

There is no audition and, although it does help, you don’t have to be able to read music – all we really ask is that you bring your enthusiasm and commitment! Music is provided and there is a reasonable termly fee to cover expenses.

For more information, please email Polly at swsongbirds@gmail.com, and come along one Monday night to have a listen and say hello – we’d love to meet you!
