The Pimlico Musical Foundation is a local charity which helps primary school children enjoy singing great music. They are currently recruiting members for their Children’s Choir and Adult Chorus and also holding an ABBA singalong event for members of the Pimlico community.
Here’s some information about the charity and their choirs:
The Pimlico Children’s Choir, directed by James Day, is open to children in Years 3-6 who live or study in Pimlico. The choir rehearses every Tuesday at St Gabriel’s Church between 4-5pm, and performs in special end-of-term concerts alongside a professional choir and orchestra.
We cover a broad range of repertoire from Classical to Disney and rehearsals include fun musical games which help build confidence and musicianship.
Membership is free and all levels of ability and experience are welcome. For further information, and to sign up, click here.
The PMF Chorus is for adults that live or work in the Westminster area and enjoy singing. Directed by James Day, the choir brings together a diverse range of people from the local community to sing a wide range of choral repertoire, including exciting, large-scale works such as Handel’s Messiah and Vivaldi’s Gloria.
We meet at St Gabriel’s Church in Pimlico on Wednesday evenings during term-time, between 7-8.30pm. At the end of each term the chorus performs in a concert alongside our children’s choirs, a professional vocal octet, and an orchestra. Membership is free, there is no audition and everyone is welcome to join us. For further information, and to sign up, please click here.
Pimlico Musical Foundation invites you to a special ABBA-themed evening of singing for all ages and abilities.
Enjoy favourites such as Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, and Waterloo, all led by our inspiring director Leanne Sedin. No preparation is needed, just bring your best singing voice and get ready to channel your inner Björn!
The session will start with some simple warm ups, then Leanne will teach us some easy choral arrangements of our favourite ABBA classic hits. We’ll finish the evening with an informal performance of everything we’ve learnt.
Tickets are pay-what-you-want, starting from as little as £1: click here.
