NTS Musical Director Tom Fowkes and committee Chair (and Alto) Emma Franklin were delighted to feature on a brand new podcast – Anybody Everybody Tottenham – recently, talking life in Tottenham, our wonderful choir and much more. You can listen to the podcast here or through your usual podcast streaming app.
We’re in the paper! Check us out on Page 15 of the July edition of Tottenham Community Press talking about singing through lockdown and the roaring success that was our recent live broadcast Fauré Requiem….
We’ve kept the musical fires burning through lockdown and beyond and are delighted to announce the new date for our live broadcast of the Fauré Requiem 2021!
UPDATE: TICKETING NOW CLOSED

A Light in the Darkness
‘Life will continue’ – this was the feeling of hope expressed by radical composer Charles Koechlin when hearing the Fauré Requiem. That’s very much how we feel, and why we want to share it with you at this time.
Join NTS for a live online performance of Fauré’s unique interpretation of the Latin mass, an icon of the classical genre for music lovers worldwide regardless of faith; beamed directly to your living room (or bedroom, kitchen, bath… you name it!)
It is with great sadness that we must postpone our Fauré concert due to the updated Covid-19 restrictions. New rules imposed for this lockdown mean it is simply not possible for the performance to go ahead as planned. We are so very sorry and hope you our audience will understand we must adhere to the guidelines and safeguard the wellbeing of our choristers.
We are determined however that the show WILL go on! Therefore we will be confirming a new date for this wonderful event ASAP and hope you will join us in the new year for the performance. Tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date, and as the concert will be available on demand as well as on the live stream there is no need for anyone to miss out!
We are working as quickly as possible with the venue to secure a date in January and will be updating all ticket holders as a matter of urgency as soon as we have a fixed date. In the meantime if you have any queries please do get in touch via Eventbrite.
We will update everyone when ticketing reopens – we hope to see you again soon!
EXCITING NEWS – NEW TERM STARTING SEPTEMBER
In need of something to look forward to? Us too!
Good news is choirs have the go ahead to resume, with some careful measures in place, so we’re RARING TO GO with rehearsals from Tuesday 8th September.
Whether you’ve been singing with us for years, or are a total newbie looking for something musical to do, we look forward to welcoming you to the choir – from an appropriate social distance of course!
For more info on the new term, including our Covid-19 safety measures and plans, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking to the future of singing in a post-lockdown world
Throughout lockdown and beyond, whilst social distancing guidelines remain in place, NTS are continuing to rehearse weekly (albeit in a virtual environment) and learn new music, with the intention of continuing with our 10th anniversary concert plans next year.
In the interim we will be working towards smaller scale projects, focussing on community events supporting our local businesses and enterprises, as circumstances permit. If you would like to get involved, or would like to get in touch about New Tottenham Singers bringing some musical spirit to YOUR future event or business (within current guidelines) please drop us an email at email@example.com
2020: Covid-19 UPDATE
In line with government advice, the 2020 Spring-Summer term for New Tottenham Singers is taking place virtually, via the joint mediums of Zoom and Facebook.
We feel it’s important we use these weeks to continue learning, as the plan for the choir is still to celebrate our 10th anniversary with a fantastic concert just as soon as circumstances and safety allow.
Furthermore, singing is really good for boosting your endorphins – and who doesn’t need an extra boost of happy right now! Singing along with digital rehearsal – whether it’s in your kitchen, living room or downstairs loo – is still great fun, and every rehearsal is followed by a virtual ‘pub’ session open to all members, which is really helping us all feel a bit closer and hopefully less isolated.
For a taster of digital rehearsals please enjoy….

Rewards of membership include the opportunity to learn a wide variety of music with a friendly group of like-minded people and an active social scene. Our repertoire includes classical, liturgical, jazz and theatrical music.
**No audition or prior experience necessary**
Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings 7.30-9.30pm at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre (stage door); followed by socialising at The Beehive until late, for those who wish to get to know us better.
