Chaps Choir is a large male singing gang from London; say goodbye to the male voice choir most would recognise. The group has been sharing its joy-inducing, heart-string pulling repertoire to audiences since 2013. Prepare for pop re-hashes, snowy hunting calls, self-aware pirates and, well, lots of men singing …
Since 2013 their voices have filled the Royal Festival Hall, The Union Chapel & other major London venues. Featured at Wilderness & Port Eliot festivals the choir has slowly built a name through its urbane entertaining presentation and unexpected repertoire choices. They’ve performed live on sat night prime time TV, recorded at Abbey Road and been the subject of articles & news pieces exploring men’s singing & male community.
Collaborations with artists & organisations include: Omar, Joe Stilgoe, The Spooky Men’s Chorale, CALM, Voices Now, The Choir With No Name & The Music Venue Trust. In 2016 we released our first single, a double a side 7" & electronic release in collaboration with singer-songwriter Samantha Whates, and in 2017 we released 'Blue Moon / Breezeblocks', a video & recording project.
Chaps Choir is on a mission to bring the metropolitan singing chap into the choral melee and envisions a world were all chaps (and ‘other’ men) can find their singing voice.
