Kodály Choir of London

Waterloo South West London

Musical Director: Alan Murdock: https://kodaly.org.uk/blog/alan-murdock-biography

The Kodály Choir of London rehearses choral music using Kodály principles. Some knowledge of solfa is recommended, and some choral singing experience is helpful. We sing beautiful music from a wide range of styles and eras of music etc, under the able direction of Alan Murdock.  Work involves a range of pieces and exercises of varied ease/difficulty, some accessible for less experienced sight readers, some quite challenging. We are a small friendly group, who meet for the enjoyment and practice of music. Occasionally we present a concert, often informally for friends and family.

Venue: The choir meet at 2:00pm to 5:00pm on the second Sunday of most months at the Waterloo Action Centre, (Mezzanine Room) 14 Baylis Road, SE1 7AA.  https://www.waterlooactioncentre.co.uk . It is very close to Waterloo Station, near the junction with Lower Cut and Waterloo Road, where the Old Vic theatre sits.
