The Swingles - Home

Sing a new piece with award-winning vocal ensemble, The Swingles

The Swingles return to the Stay At Home Choir!

 

We're thrilled to welcome back The Swingles! And we've got an exclusive opportunity for you all: we'll be the first choir to perform an arrangement of their brand new song, 'Home'.

 

'Home' is a pop/rock anthem about belonging everywhere and nowhere, and sharing connections with a worldwide community - the perfect track for the world's biggest global choir! Listen to an exclusive preview below.

 

 

Originally formed in 1963, The Swingles are a five-time Grammy award-winning vocal ensemble. Currently made up of seven members - including SAHC co-founder, Jamie Wright - the group sings a huge variety of music, including original songs like 'Home'. You'll recognise The Swingles' distinctive sound from numerous film and TV soundtracks, including Glee and Disney's Cruella.

 

This project is open to everyone, both Stay At Home Choir regulars and first-timers! All ages and abilities are very welcome, and we have members all around the world. You don't need to read music, you just need to love singing. We'll provide everything you need to learn, sing, and record.

 

Our suggested contribution for this project is £16*, but you can Pay-As-You-Feel, with a minimum contribution of £3*.

About the Stay At Home Choir

 

The Stay At Home Choir is an online music-making community. We run virtual choir projects which allow over 26,000 people from over 76 countries to sing with their favourite artists.

 

Being a part of your wonderful online singing community is SUCH a massive help and comfort. It is utterly amazing to be a (tiny!) part of this incredible effort and just wanted to say thank you for all that you do to ensure that we continue to sing together.

We provide detailed learning resources, online rehearsals, and one-off sessions with internationally acclaimed musicians, conductors, and composers. Our members become part of a friendly and thriving community, connecting with fellow music-lovers around the world.

 

The joy and enthusiasm is so infectious, it is wonderful! And living in a remote village, the choir gives me the chance to sing music in a choir that I otherwise wouldn't be able to.

We've collaborated with artists including I Fagiolini, Gareth Malone, The King's Singers, Christopher Tin, The Swingles, John Rutter, Sir Karl Jenkins, VOCES8, Marin Alsop, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. 

 

For me being part of the SAHC community, meeting all those crazy, inspiring, wonderful and musical people from all over the world is something that I never had thought I would ever experience. And look where we are now!! What an achievement!! What a joy!! What a hell of a lot of fun and happiness.
