More Cheese? Wine not.

Mystery. Suspense. Murder..

No, this is not a description of one of our choir rehearsals – rather, our silent film night – which this year entertained the good folk of Herne Hill as part of their 2017 music festival. It was loads of fun as always and of course, 1920’s film night requires 1920’s outfits! (The band had special dispensation to wear fezzes). Don’t ask.

Thanks to Diana for the pic.

Silent film night really has become a bit of a Camberwell institution. We don’t think any other community choirs do this kind of thing. Don’t miss the next one in 2018! Speaking of not to be missed…

CheeseTUESDAY
14th NOVEMBER

is choir wine and cheese night. You are cordially invited to bring your favourite smelly cheeses, crackers, nibbles and wines to our now legendary soirée.
We always need a few extra bits and pieces such as chopping boards etc – see our choir social page on Facebook for the latest list or just ask at a rehearsal.

Please Note – St Giles’ were hoping to host a short concert beforehand at 6.30pm which would have been free for community choir members but it’s been cancelled due to illness. It’s probably for the best as wine was due to be served there too… See you on the 14th!

The Lodger Returns!

Three years ago we accompanied Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Lodger’ in a live screening in St Giles’ church.

Starring Ivor Novello, it’s one of Alfred Hitchcock’s first films as director and is set in the London of the roaring 1920’s. At night, lurking in the fog, a serial killer known as “The Avenger” is on the loose. When a mysterious man arrives at the house of Mr. and Mrs. Bunting, suspicions begin to arise…

It was such a success we’ve decided to screen it again but this time, as part of Herne Hill Music Festival. Yes – we’re taking it on tour! We’ll be learning some new songs for it as well as some old classics – but it’s a tall order as the screening will take place on Sunday 15th October at 6pm. Our first rehearsal back is on Tuesday 5th September so it’s going to be hard work…

But fun! If you’ve never performed during a live film screening, come along to some Tuesday rehearsals and see what you’ve been missing. If not, why not come along for the show? Tickets and further details are available here.
