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 choir is open to all and asks for a small donation of £3 per session from participants in order to make it possible. The meetings are a chance to meet new friends,sing your heart out and most of all, have fun. Teas & Coffees included.
If you would like to be part of the choir, please email a short paragraph about yourself to
