Tamesis is a chamber choir with a difference. We’re a friendly, lively, committed and diverse group of aound 25 singers, capable of high standard performances on relatively few rehearsals.
We perform concerts in the Reading and London area and beyond and have released three professional standard CDs to date. We’re also available for hire!
Our repertoire is truly diverse – from contemporary, spirituals, pop and musical theatre to plainchant, classical staples and liturgical music. We’ve sung in languages ancient and modern, from Arabic to Zulu via Latin, Russian and many more, performing major European choral works with soloists and orchestra as joyfully as a capella English folk songs.
We’re all busy people so we like to make our Monday night practice time count! Our rehearsals are intense but exhilarating and always lively and good-humoured.
Some of our members are professional musicians and music teachers, others have a lifelong love of singing, with experience in a range of different groups. We share a great camaraderie and enjoy socialising in the pub after rehearsals and gigs.
We’re a really friendly bunch and love to make new members welcome. Whatever your musical background, if you’re a capable sight-reader and enjoy singing a wide variety of music in harmony, come and meet us…
