We sing a variety of songs - "from pop to classical, musicals to madrigals", as we like to say - for pleasure and performance.
We are open to all ages and abilities. No need to audition and no singing experience required. Just bring your enthusiasm.
We sing in parts
We also use sheet music, so if you can read music you'll pick songs up quicker - but don't worry, most of us learn by repetition.
We meet every Tuesday, 8-9.30pm, upstairs at the Goodliffe Hall on Highland Rd SE19 1DP (next to Christ Church Gipsy Hill).
Karl Gietzmann's interest in choirs began as a young boy chorister in Lincoln Cathedral Choir. Following studies in music at Cambridge University and the Royal Academy of Music, he has combined teaching and singing work in and around London. Recent highlights include appearing on Radio 3 In tune, as part of an unconducted ensemble last year, and singing the role of the Angel in Jonathan Dove's opera Tobias and the Angel in the presence of the composer.
Karl became music director of Crystal Palace Community Choir in October 2015, and has relished exploring new repertory with the choir
