We offer something for everyone who enjoys singing in a friendly atmosphere. We organise a number of day, weekend and week-long events across the country and abroad, ranging from relaxed singing days and community choir showcases to Musicianship for Singers courses and 3-day summer choral courses.
Talented professional conductors help each choir to sing to the best of their abilities and really encourage the joy of choral singing. This enjoyment is key to improving personal skills and achieving impressive standards of performance. Our courses always include advice about personal vocal training and developing good choral habits. We’re also happy to point you in the direction of local activities, too.
If you like to sing abroad, we regularly take groups of singers to other countries and often welcome choirs here, to give concerts and enjoy our hospitality. Previous destinations include Palma in Majorca, Venice, Rome, Florence, Athens, Dubrovnik and Barcelona.
Every three years a group of SfP singers takes part in the remarkable Choralies festival in Vaison la Romaine, run by A Coeur Joie in France. Around 5,000 singers gather from around the world to sing and to celebrate choirs in all their splendour!
Youngsters with a talent for singing are catered for, too. We run non-residential Singing Weeks in certain locations each summer, where gifted 9-13 year-olds have the opportunity to learn basic choral and musicianship skills in fun, informal sessions led by experienced teachers.

On a final note: when you’re seeking new repertoire – for either adults or children – SfP’s publications offer a solution. They contain a wide variety of enjoyable songs and arrangements for a range of ages and abilities, taken from a broad selection of musical traditions. Our songs have given choirs much useful and enjoyable material and are clearly presented and reasonably priced. For more information, please visit our online shop.
