Barcarolle Choir is an international group of women who love singing, friendship and fun.
Since it was formed in 2012 by the original Music Director Katrine Reimers, Barcarolle Choir has performed several concerts featuring soloists from the Royal College of Music. In 2014 Sam Evans took on the baton as Musical Director. Sam has been focusing on expanding the choir composition and singing repertoire, helping singers improve their voices and focus on their vocal talents.
The choir has performed in various Churches across South Kensington and Earl’s Court. It has been invited by The Royal Air Force Club or the FIWAL Federation to perform during their Christmas and Spring events. In 2018 Barcarolle Choir joined the Sing the World Tour to perform the Street Requiem at the Central Hall in Westminster. In 2019, Barcarolle Choir performed Christmas Carols at the V&A. In Summer 2021 the choir performed during a private event in Cornwall Gardens.
Barcarolle Choir is planning many events for the coming months on top of its Summer concert in June such as an outdoor Afternoon Tea performance at Trumpeter’s House in Richmond and a singing week-end in Orvieto, Italy to perform in the Duomo.
Whether you are an experienced singer looking for new musical challenges, or someone who wants to give singing a try for the first time, Barcarolle Choir is for you: comprising two groups (one Pop / Modern, one Classical / Contemporary), Barcarolle offers something to all musical tastes and abilities.
Barcarolle Choir rehearsals take place on Thursday lunch times at St Cuthberts’ Church, Earls Court.
