The Choir of St Laurence, Catford

choir in 2017

Our talented and dynamic choir is made up of young people and adults from the congregation and the local community, and supports worship on a weekly basis. The choir provides an excellent space for exploring the joys of singing ensemble, and all members of the choir are nurtured as musicians by our Director of Music, Jocelyn Freeman.

For the under-18s in the choir, there are a number of bursaries available annually to support further music tuition. The choir regularly goes on tour, both in the UK and abroad. Recent tours include Ypres (2013), Durham (2015) and Madrid (2017). In 2018 we will travel to St Davids.
This continues a long tradition of musical excellence at St Laurence’s, and past Directors of Music have included David Sanger, Professor Roger Wibberley, Iain Simcock, Paul Dewhurst, Andrew Ibbotson & Huw Morgan.

If you or someone you know would be interested in joining the choir, or for more information, please email Jocelyn Freeman at info@stlaurencecatford.org.uk. More information about the musical education we offer can be found here
