About Cheltenham Singers

Cheltenham Singers is a new community choir in Cheltenham, launched in September 2022, which runs every Wednesday evening In Christ Church's Harwood Hall.


Directed by Jennifer Legg and accompanied by Sheila Henderson, this pairing have loved making music together since 2012, leading Oxford City Singers towards being one of the largest choirs in Oxford. 

Whether you've sung before or are a complete beginner, this could be a choir for you. We have lots of fun and make great music too. Take a look at some examples of the repertoire we might perform here.

Rehearsals cost £5 to attend, payable at the beginning of the rehearsal. No joining fee, no hidden costs, no pressure.
