Welcome to Jericho Singers!
If you've found us online you've probably heard about this Oxford choir from a friend or received a flier or spotted a poster around and about, then welcome.
We are a friendly, fun group of singers, that get together on a Monday evening at St. Barnabas Church, Jericho, Oxford. Our choir is passionate about the canal and our concerts raise money for the Jericho Boatyard and Wharf project - more information at www.jerichowharf.com.
We love to sing songs about the canal and boats as well as a whole range of music from jazz to pop, folk to classical, R & B to hip hop. Singing in different styles helps you learn different techniques and approaches, which really improves your singing overall!
No previous singing experience is required, equally if you are an experienced singer or reader you will also find something that stretches you too.
Our new website will eventually be a home for all sorts of singing and musical resources that we hope will help you in your quest to become a fabulous singer. Every member who signs up for at least a term will have their own unique password and access to our online resources.
Our Monday night choir has a waiting list at the moment but we are lauching a new lunchtime choir in St Barnabas Church on a Wednesday. If you are interested in joining one of our choirs please see the join page here.

About Steph Pirrie (www.stephpirrie.com)
I am a singer, musician and vocal coach living in Jericho Oxford working in all genres of music including Jazz, folk, classical, R & B. I have a number of musical interests shall we say and a one of them a huge passion for communal singing. As far as Jericho Singers goes, my mission is to take everyone on a journey through different songs and styles. Sometimes the music we enjoy to sing is very different from the music we like to listen to and this can be a revelation! So far we have touched on Irish folk tunes, music from Cabaret the musical, Some great pop & R & B tunes.
We encourage our singers to suggest repertoire and to bring along songs they love that might be suitable for the group to sing.
And also close to my heart is social dancing. If you like ceilidh dancing and are looking for a fun saturday night with or without the family get along to a hoolie night - a ceilidh with a disco twist. See www.saedlydorus.com for more info.
