Choirs at Coloma

Community Choir

Coloma’s Community Choir was set up in 2005 when Coloma was awarded specialist music college status. It is a mixed choir and is open to parents, former pupils, friends of the schools and adults from the surrounding area.

The Choir rehearses on alternate Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9pm at the school. The emphasis is very much on having fun in a relaxed atmosphere but the choir does take part in some of the school concerts including at the Fairfield Hall and has also performed on its own at local care homes and the school fete!

Anyone interested in joining should leave a message for Gill Hope at the school who will get back in touch. All are welcome and there are no auditions!

The Carroll Singers

The Carroll Singers are a Chamber Choir who have been in existence since 2001 and perform at 4 to 5 concerts during the year, raising money for charity. Members of the Choir are all past pupils at Coloma and Ex- Senior Special Choir members who have been taught by Mrs Norma Carroll. (Mrs Carroll was Head of Music at Coloma until her retirement in 2000). The Choir meets and rehearses at Coloma once every two weeks during term time on a Wednesday evening.

If you are a past Coloma Pupil and Ex- senior special choir member taught by Mrs Carroll and would like further details please contact Mrs Carroll via thecarrollsingers@yahoo.co.uk

Whilst the Choir take their music seriously, they also have great fun and enjoy being able to use the skills they learnt at Coloma to help charitable causes within the community. Since starting the Choir in 2001 they have raised approaching £20,000 for various worthy charities including a magnificent £1,700 at one concert alone for Coloma Uganda in June 2013 and £1,300 for Home Start Croydon in December 2014.
