Vox Holloway is a community choir based at St Luke’s Church, West Holloway, London. We are an open and friendly choir with no audition process. You can ‘Follow’ this website and get informed of new posts by clicking on the follow button hovering in the bottom right hand of your screen. See more of what we do in this short video
Our next concert will be on Sunday 2nd July 7 pm 2017 – St Luke’s,
We do not have many places left for Sopranos and Altos, due to the fact that the stage area is full. Sopranos and Altos wishing to join should apply here with a short email saying why you would like to join Vox. There is still space for some Tenors and Basses.

I hear East Anglia is lovely at this time of year, and the wonderful Harvey and the Wallbangers are performing at the Bury St Edmunds Festival on the 27th May
The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that this is actually the Old Church in Stoke Newington

Saturday 13 May, 10am – 4pm
St Luke’s are looking for volunteers to come and help with some maintenance jobs around the church on Saturday 13 May. As I’m sure you’ll agree, Vox Holloway is very lucky to be able to rehearse and perform in such a beautiful space, but lots of work is needed to care for the building. There are a variety of jobs, from tidying to painting and they will be providing a lunch. You can turn up at any time and stay for an hour or longer – whatever suits. It is a nice social day and any time you are able to spare would be gratefully received!
