South West Essex Choir (SWEC for short!) is a large, friendly and non-auditioned choir with a membership of over 100 people mainly from Redbridge, Waltham Forest and South Essex.

We sing a wide range of music from sacred music to lighter works such as opera choruses, african-jazz inspired Zimbe! and Mass in Blue.

Rehearsals for our 2016-17 season begin on Tuesday 20th September 2016. We’re always on the look out for new members. Visit the join us page to find out about singing with us!

Our next concert is on Saturday 1st April at 7.30pm at St Gabriel’s Church, Wanstead, when we will be singing the ever-popular Carmina Burana by Carl Orff along with the world premiere of a piece written for the choir by our very own conductor, James Sherlock. Tickets can be purchased here.
