Pram Chorus is a fun and friendly daytime choir for mums, dads, grandparents, expectant mothers, nannies and anyone else looking after small people. Everyone is welcome! It's about YOU doing something creative and fun for yourself, where your little one is also welcome (in all their vocal glory!) So bring your bumps and babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers and come to sing a huge variety of adult songs - no nursery rhymes.
Based in South London, UK, with sessions in Balham and Tooting, we meet weekly in term-time and are taught by ear (without sheet music) so that you have your hands free to hold a little one, dance or click along.
We do regular performances, often in aid of a local charity, at community events and further afield at places like the Southbank. Just as important as the singing is the social side with everyone staying on after sessions for a bit of a chat.
Sessions are run by experienced choir director, singer and local mum, Ruth Routledge. Aside from getting you to make sounds you’ve never even dreamed of, Ruth is supportive and understanding of your needs and creates a warm, welcoming place to come together. You don't need to have any singing experience or talent, nor do you have to make small talk or discuss the intricacies of your baby's feeding/pooing-habits (although of course you can) - you can just rock up and sing!
" I was looking for something different - something fun for me and my children. I found it in Pram Chorus along with so much more. New friends, a renewed love of music and some rather fantastic cake to name but a few." Shareen, lawyer and mum of two.
