The Crofton Singers is a friendly four-part chamber choir based in Woodford, East London, rehearsing on Thursday evenings at Bancroft's School, High Road, Woodford Green, Essex IG8 0RF. New members (over 16) are always welcome: there are no formal auditions – selection is by mutual agreement after a few rehearsals. Jonathan Rathbone, as the Musical Director (and former Director of Swingle Singers), makes the rehearsals fun as well as creating an environment in which to learn and develop as singers.
We reach a good standard of chamber singing with the majority of members being able to read music and sight-read. We suggest some experience of choral singing would help. If you are interested in joining do contact us or email: email@example.com
Our next concert, our Summer Concert, is on Sunday 30th June 2019 at 5.00pm at
St Paul’s Church, St Stephen’s Road, London E3 5JL.
We will be holding an Open Rehearsal on Friday 10th May at 8.00pm at St Paul's Church.
We concluded our 70th Anniversary year with a concert on 14th December 2017 in the splendid surroundings of the Drapers' Company Hall.

"There are a couple of good reasons why I drive about 30 miles to hear a concert by the Crofton Singers. First, they are a talented group of people with evident enthusiasm for the music they sing and secondly, the music they sing is varied. The concerts I've attended have included works by composers of the 16th century through to the present day with a consequent difference in style and musician-ship”
Summer Term rehearsals start on Thursday 25th April at 8.00pm in the Music Room at Bancroft's School.
