What we're about

In this times of isolation and social distancing we carry on "Singing Together" but we are doing online until it is safe to meet again. We are the LOLCHOIR, a group created in Sept. 2013. The Singing must go on!

We usually focus on Latin American & Spanish repertoire, but in Summer 2020 we will be doing a short term focused on Traditional 'World Music Repertoire'.

LOL = Landscapes Of Latin-America

As the name suggests the aim of the LOLCHOIR is to paint the Landscapes of Latin-America (and Spain) through the sound of its music, from Mexico to Argentina and the Iberian Peninsula.

* WHAT? The are plenty of choirs in London but no one -that I know- focused strictly on repertoire from Latin America. There are countless wonderful songs and melodies to sing so why not?

* WHY? Singing is one of my favourite things in life and I love sharing that passion with people, it is fun, relaxing, healing, and very accessible to every one so why not? There is another aspect of the "why", and it is to create a space where people can either practice Spanish, learn it or basically get back to their roots if they are Spanish speakers but living in London there is not much space to sing in their mother tongue. Many more reasons exist, lets say we'll do it to feed our souls :).

* WHO CAN JOIN? Everyone willing to sing and have fun. Maybe you want to practise your Spanish, maybe you are learning it or simply anyone who enjoys singing :). NO AUDITION REQUIRED
.

* WHERE?

Right now we are meeting online, but in 'normal times' the rehearsals are just a 10min walk from KING'S CROSS station at "Calthorpe Project" 258 - 274 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8LH
