A brief intro to our Enfield choir group – “The Enfield Community Singers”
Following a long career in musical theatre, 2011 was my 25th anniversary of producing touring shows for prestigious theatres throughout the UK. During that period I put together some 12 shows which were extremely well received by a mature and discerning public. The shows that had been favoured most were always those that contained a singalong aspect. I wanted to continue this within The Borough of Enfield, but drawing from the community and across the age groups and cultures; I wanted to give the opportunity to people in Enfield who perhaps had done little singing, yet loved to sing, and wanted to be part of a body of like minded people who just wanted the opportunity to sing together.
In March of 2011 we formed a choir group in Enfield called The Enfield Community Singers and put our first show on in December at the Irish Centre in Tottenham. It consisted of great classical standards like Amazing Grace, Waterloo, Consider Yerself, Hey Jude, Singing in The Rain and My Way with some well known solo items. The show went down a storm, and now fired up I moved on to more productions bearing the title….
Below you can watch some of the recent performances by The Enfield Community Singers in Enfield. There are 7 short videos:
Our performances offer audiences the chance to join us singing truly great selections of lovely songs including, Unforgettable, As Time Goes By, Edelweiss, Sing a Song, You’ll Never Know, Morning Has Broken, Bright Eyes with a couple of great London Medleys, which never fail to get audiences singing along. It is always a lot of fun, as we like to create a party atmosphere where everyone can participate and have a good time.

Joining The Choir:
The atmosphere at our choir rehearsals is always great as we’re all there for the same purpose, a love of singing. Choir members come in from across the Enfield area and are mainly adult – from mid-thirties to retired. We have two choir groups and usually rehearse every week. Everybody pays £5.00 per session This covers the use of hall, pianist and administration costs as well as providing a copy of the words with a disc of all the pieces so that choir members can practice at home.
