Ruth conducting

Chorus of Dissent, Stoke Newington’s community choir

All normal rehearsals are at St Matthias Church, Wordsworth Road, London N16 8DD, unless otherwise stated. They are usually 7 – 9pm, and 7 – 10pm on the final Wednesday when we rehearse with the orchestra. On the concert day the rehearsal is normally 2 – 5pm.

Concert dress is black lower half, single bright colour upper half, no patterns or stripes.

We don’t charge a subscription. However, we do ask for a voluntary donation of £20 (or whatever you can afford) towards the costs of each concert. Generally speaking you are expected to purchase all vocal scores, unless directed otherwise.
