The choir that brings out the music in singers of all abilities
Just when here at NLS we thought singing couldn't get any more exciting, we bring you news of ...

21st August 2021 - Garden Party
Our first get together and our first sing together
20th July 2021 - VocalZoom: The Final
We held our (hopefully) very last
VocalZoom session this week. We've enjoyed Zooming (I use that term loosely) to keep everything in shape during Lockdown: VocalZooms for our vocal cords, QuizZooms for our grey matter, and
even a FestiveZoom for our souls. Thank you to everyone who has joined Martyn and me over the last year.
Details of NLS rehearsals restarting will be published during August. A full Covid Statement in response to the Government's announcement on the 19th July 2021 can be found in the Members' Section.
... Still singing, still quizzing (even if at times we do resemble the Brady Bunch)...
Plans on returning to rehearsals that don't include the words "Zoom" and "Mute All" will be published in due course.
22 December 2020
NLS enjoyed a Service of Readings and Carols this afternoon on Zoom. We might be missing one another, but we sure know how to make up for it. Thank you to all who contributed. Members can find a transcript of the Service on the Members' Page.
All that remains is for us to say to you all two things:
Firstly - while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.
And secondly - this Christmas, more than ever, may you experience - wherever you are and whoever you're with - the deep peace, the unfathomable love and the great joy that came down that starry night: and bring you unshakeable hope as we face a new year together.
Claire and Martyn
This should have been us tonight.
Yes, once again we were due to perform to one of our most enthusiastic of audiences - the Chelsea Pensioners at the Royal Hospital. Here we are in 2019.
2020 was due to be our busiest year yet, with shows booked at Millfield Theatre, Dugale Centre, Myddelton House - to name but a few. Sadly, due to Covid, we're unable to meet in person. But that doesn't stop NLS. We're still singing and quizzing regularly via Zoom. We're still learning new pieces for future events when they do happen, and we're singing familiar pieces to simply have fun! No, it's not the same, but we remain grateful for each other and for the technology that helps us to stay in touch.
Stay safe everyone. We will return!
