Concert Postponed

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.

What’s happening

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!

Faure requiem

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!


Statue with thought bubble: Time to get a new hobby?

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

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….

Our repertoire includes classical, liturgical, jazz and theatrical music.
