In 2010 Hackney Empire launched our very own community choir. Former BBC Last Choir Standing judge Sharon D Clarke in partnership with former East London Gospel Choir music/choir director Joseph Roberts took the helm and put together a fantastic group that performed live at Hackney Empire as part of our very own summer music festival, Sounds Like Hackney 2010, and were such a success that the group have been continuing and growing ever since. The choir’s repertoire is an eclectic mix of music from Pop to Classical which embraces the cultural diversity within the choir.
The highlight of the 2014 Hackney Empire Community Choir was their final performance at our Sing Out! Festival of Choirs. They were joined by The ACM Gospel Choir, The Reapers Choir, The Fourth Choir, Enchorus and the Reggae Choir at a day of workshops and performances. Sing Out! will return in Spring 2015 with a whole new line up of choirs and the 2015 Hackney Empire Community Choir.
