Singing and music-making for all – FREE on YouTube.

Welcome to the website of Bristol-based musician Ben England‘s homechoir project. Launched in March 2020 under the banner “Quarantine Choir” Ben has built a community of singers numbering in the thousands who join him on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons (and Sunday morning) for singing, fun and camaraderie.

The Quarantine Choir broadcasts ended on August 7 2020, and homechoir launched officially on September 4th.

HOW DO I JOIN?

Homechoir rehearsals and broadcasts are free to all. If you would like to support homechoir through a donation via PayPal or by joining our Patreon, we would be very grateful for your help.

WHAT IS HOMECHOIR?

Singing is one of the best ways to feel part of a community, to feel the buzz of expressing yourself through your voice and to feel music in your very core.

A lot of people are unable to access singing, either because they don’t have the time, the money or in many cases the ability to leave the house and make their way to a choir rehearsal. This can be a very isolating experience.

homechoir.uk is a way for people who can’t leave the house to access many of the health benefits of singing, through video singing sessions, fun arrangements of songs and singing tips and lessons from experts.
