Join us

SWEC is delighted to be back rehearsing in person at Loughton Methodist Church, 260 High Rd, Loughton IG10 1RB between 7.45-9.45pm.  

We’re always on the lookout for new members, particularly in the male sections. If you enjoy singing, why not join one of rehearsals and try us out?  You are welcome to join us at any time.

We practise in a friendly and supportive atmosphere and aim to develop individual musicianship, as well as present public performances to the highest achievable standards.

If you wish to become a member of SWEC there is no audition but you must be able to sing and we do ask that you commit to regular rehearsals and participate in performances.

I felt compelled to express my gratitude for your article in the local gazette that inspired me to join SWEC… rehearsals culminated in a truly joyful experience.” (New member 2016)

Rehearsal terms for the 2021-22 season are:


Tuesday 26 March 2022 – 28 June 2022 .

We will be singing the Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concert and Roland Perrin’s Brazilian Songs of Nature.

Please contact our membership secretary for more information about joining one of our rehearsals.
