BARKING AND DAGENHAM ADULT COLLEGE CHOIR started in 1993 as a ‘singing from scratch’ class for people who wanted to discover the joys of choral singing and creating harmonies together. Over the years the range and difficulty of music has grown, the repertoire now includes classical and sacred music, folk, gospel, jazz, and songs from well known musicals.
The choir has a membership of 30-40 singers of all ages. As well as our regular concerts at the end of each term, we perform in local community events and also in private occasions. The choir has also performed in the Chelmsford Music Festival and The Barking and Dagenham Molten Festival. They have also collaborated with the Cantores Dominicae choir from Lyminge, Kent, on two return visits, in 2006 and 2012.
There are no auditions and we welcome anyone with an interest in singing, ability to sing parts in tune and commitment for regular rehearsals and concerts.
