SE Juniors

 

Our South East Junior choir is the first of our area choirs to be established as a part of our 10th anniversary plan to expand into the four corners of London, helping more young people to access a brilliant musical education closer to their homes. It is a mixed voice choir for boys and girls in school years 3 – 6.

This choir is conducted by Rachel Staunton and rehearses on Thursday evenings, from 4.45 – 6pm during term time, at the Alfred Salter School in Rotherhithe.
