Love to sing? Then come and join us.
Well known for its infectious energy and joyous sound, Hackney Empire Community Choir is back for another term from September and everyone is welcome! You’ll learn an eclectic mix of music which embraces the cultural diversity within the choir, plus it’s a great chance to meet new friends, sing your heart out and most of all, have fun.
Hackney Empire Community Choir was launched in 2010 by Olivier award winning, former BBC Last Choir Standing judge Sharon D Clarke in partnership with former East London Gospel Choir music/choir director Joseph Roberts. The group has accompanied Hackney-born Leona Lewis on stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend to perform her hit single Run in 2012, performed at the Paralympic Opening Ceremony in 2012 and were invited again to accompany Leona at the Royal Albert Hall in May 2013.
The choir also performed at the Southbank Centre belting out “Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves” in celebration of International Women’s Day in February 2014.
The Hackney Empire Choir is a great social activity and members interact with the local artistic community both professional and amateur with regular invitations to develop its programme of performances across the UK.
Please note that the weekly sessions are not public performances.
Hackney Empire Community Choir is now on a summer break and will be back on Thursday in September 2017. Start to be confirmed.
In 2017 choir will be on a Thursday evening in Empire 2 or the Harold Pinter Room from 7pm- 9pm.
