The Richmond Station Singers comprises three different community choirs who meet separately to rehearse, but come together to perform in concerts.
- Platform One
- Platform Two
- Branch Line
Each choir progresses at its own speed, learns its own songs, and learns a few songs to perform with the combined choirs.
Wednesday 10.00 – 11.30, meeting in Screen 2 at The Station, is suitable for anyone who likes to sing. The material includes popular songs, folk songs, songs from the shows, spirituals and a dash of world music. It will include simple harmonies as well as unison songs. Any sheet music reading is explained as we go along in an informal and fun way.
Wednesday 11.45- 13.15, meeting in Screen 2 at The Station, is suitable for singers who have music reading skills.

There is a varied and interesting repertoire ranging from simple to more complex harmonies.
We sing from sheet music, with explanations along the way to help music reading if this is new to you. The songs chosen are a variety ranging from choral pops through to folk songs, spirituals and some world music. We like singing gospel songs too.
The atmosphere is both friendly and enjoyable, and we move at the pace of our members.
