choir of around 16 people based, we are distinctive in several ways. We

talk to the audience. We have a number of fine raconteurs who introduce
sets of songs, always informatively, often humorously. We try to
entertain rather than impress our audience. There's little that's
challenging to the ear (though there are some pieces that are difficult
to get right!).

Note-Orious, East Dulwich, South
rehearsals are relaxed and fun, but at the same time focused on
improving individual singing technique and group performance .An
important principle of the choir is that members don't have to be able
to read music, so pieces are taught through a combination of song lyrics
and sheet music. Each song in the Note-Orious repertoire has been
suggested by a member of the choir, and we have covered artists such as
Elbow, Blur, Scissor Sisters, Take That, Queen and ELO. We have also
performed songs from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, South Pacific, Sweet
Charity and the James Bond films.There is no audition, and anyone can
join, as long as they can sing in tune. Most songs are performed in
four-part harmony – lower and higher male voices, and lower and higher
female voices – so every new member should be able to find a place to
fit in. All female places are currently filled, but there is a waiting
list you can join. More male voices are very welcome.
