Repertoire

Since the choir started in 2009, it has enjoyed singing a wide ranging and eclectic mix of music (popular, folk, classical, latin american, world and musicals) from simple unison songs to complex four part arrangements. In 2017 the choir decide to create it's own 'Hall of Fame'. This exemplifies the wide ranging nature of the choir's repertoire and gives an indication of the music the choir enjoys singing!
