The Addison Singers Chamber Choir is a small choir for skilled singers exploring a varied repertoire from the Renaissance to the present day.
The Addison Group of Singers (AGS) is made up of different classes and choirs for singers of all ages, abilities and from all walks of life. It was founded over 25 years ago, has been a registered charity for over 15 years, and is well known in West London.
Aria is a vocal group from Glasgow made up of eight friends who have been singing together since childhood. Aria are accompanied by musician and musical director Jim Drennan.
The group have an extensive repertoire of music from sacred and classical to folk and modern and sing both as a group and as solo performers. The repertoire includes classics from Mozart and Handel as well as more modern classics by Bernstein and even Snow Patrol so there is truly something for everyone. As they have been singing together for twenty years, the balance is almost perfect. Aria have performed at numerous concerts and functions since their formation from being guest artists of high profile choirs to winning the Glasgow Orpheus Choir trophy at the Glasgow Music Festival last year.
