The N10 Choir is an adult SSAA Choir based in Muswell Hill, London N10. It currently consists of 16 members of mixed ages, backgrounds and nationalities.
The Choir performs fund-raising concerts at St Peter le Poer Church and sings regularly at local homes for the elderly and children with special needs.
The public concert repertoire is varied and has so far included music by Vivaldi, Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Britten, Rutter, Jenkins and Faure as well as traditional Irish, Hebrew and African music.
In October 2016, the Choir performed its most ambitious project, Karl Jenkins' box office hit Adiemus, which raised substantial funds for Unicef Syria Projects. This performance was re-created in May 2017 at the Igreja de Porches, Portugal. In November 2018, the Choir performed a classical music concert in Rome to raise funds for the Christian Codrai Foundation Phoenix Project. And most recently, on 15th June, 2019, the choir performed Vivaldi's Gloria donating the proceeds to Medecins Sans Frontieres - Doctors without Borders.
In contrast, the repertoire for concerts at local care homes features mainly Light Music. Songs that residents know and love and are happy to sing along to. Firm favourites include everything from well-known songs from The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady, to wartime favourites and classics such as Strangers in the Night and Somewhere over the Rainbow.
Christmas Carols are the highlight of the festive season when, traditionally, the choir leads the Candlelit Christmas Carols Concert at St. Peter le Poer Church, sings carols at the homes and performs a Carol Concert at the Muswell Hill Golf Club.
Plans for the future are to continue to add to the Choir's diverse repertoire, to raise funds for international charities through concerts at St. Peter le Poer and to expand the Choir's outreach programme to include other homes and special need schools in the area.
