Join us

Crouch End Festival Chorus is a North London choir which is always looking for singers to join us and we hold auditions throughout the year. We rehearse every Friday in Muswell Hill in London from 7.30 to 10pm at Fortismere School, Tetherdown, London N10 1NE.

We put on five concerts a year at prestigious venues and are in demand for a wide range of recordings and external engagements. The choir has a membership of around 150 singers who sing in all of our own concerts.

Watch our conductor, David Temple, and some of our singers explain why Crouch End Festival Chorus could be the choir for you.

If you are interested in joining us, please fill out our form or email us at, to arrange to attend one of our Friday rehearsals.

We also hold regular Open Rehearsals when anyone is welcome to come and try us out.

All members pay an annual subscription, which can be paid in instalments, and we have special rates for full-time students, the unwaged and OAPs. The money is used to fund our concerts and is a major part of the income necessary to book fantastic venues such as the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall.
