The Trad Academy Sea Shanty Choir meets on Thursdays at Chats Palace in Homerton to rehearse, and performs regularly in London and further afield. The choir is currently made up of members from a diverse range of nationalities and backgrounds, and supports many great singers and musicians as well as members with no previous experience of group singing.
The Choir is currently accepting new members at the beginning of each term. The first week of term is a free trial session and there’s no charge for new members. If after coming and singing with us you’d like to join the choir we ask new members to commit to attending the term in order to integrate into the group and learn the core repertoire. The choir is a non-audition choir and accepts singers of all levels of experience and abilities. No previous musical training is necessary so come and sing with us!
The choir is currently focusing on expanding it’s repertoire of work songs from the golden age of sailing ships, as well as developing technique for both ensemble and solo singing. Existing members of the choir who have attended previously are always welcome to drop in and sing.
