UCL Staff Singing Club

4 September 2018

We launched the UCL Staff Singing Club last term and we have all enjoyed it hugely. Our amazing choir leader, Gitika Partington, is capable of finding music in a stone and we’ve all been surprised at how good we sound!

Singing Club

We really encourage colleagues to join us and give it a try. You don’t need any previous experience of singing in a choir — just enthusiasm. We had around 70 members last term from all across UCL and we’d love to get 100 singing this term. Singing is a wonderful stress-release mechanism, and contributes to wellbeing at work, as well as just being lots of fun.

We will be singing again this term, starting on 11 September, and meeting weekly with a break for half-term/reading week. If you would like to register for the singing club this term, please do so by completing the following doodle poll with your email address. The deadline for registration is 14 September. For any queries, please contact Malika Barakat (m.barakat@ucl.ac.uk).

You should be able to commit to at least 8 of the 12 sessions and we will be asking for a donation of £40 to the Student Hardship Fund to encourage commitment and attendance.

The club will begin with new repertoire, and the sessions will be held as below in The Bloomsbury Theatre, 15 Gordon Street, London WC1H 0AH:
