Join us for an exhilarating day singing the incomparable Requiem by Verdi, under the inspiring leadership of the EAC's Founding Director Leslie Olive. EAC has sung Verdi's Requiem in a number of prestigious performing venues, including the Barbican and The Queen Elizabeth Hall. We are hoping to perform this great piece again in London in Season 2023 -2024.
You could be part of that experience by joining us as a member; speak to one of the team on the day!

How to Book
On-line booking is now closed. You are welcome to join us, but please note that we cannot guarantee to have a score to lend you. We are able to take payment by card, cash or cheque.
Please note that if, for any reason, the singing day has to be cancelled, booking fees paid will be refunded in full. No refunds will be made for any other reason.
How to Pay
Our preferred method of payment is by online banking, using the following details:
CAF Bank plc
The English Arts Chorale Association
Sort Code 40-52-40 Account No. 00025279
Please use a reference of "VSD" followed by your surname.
Note that our bank, CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) Bank, does not subscribe to the Account Name Verification system, and therefore your bank will issue dire warnings that any mistake will be yours not theirs, thereby instilling a sense of unease which wouldn't have been there before the Verification system was introduced.
We would prefer that people paid by direct transfer - that way we don't have to pay a card fee. However, if you would rather pay by debit or credit card, or by PayPal, use our payment routine here ►
There will be a raffle in support of our Sponsor a Player Scheme
Parking & Access
Cars can be parked in the Prep School car-park opposite the church, or in neighbouring streets. Please note parking on the road directly outside the church is time-limited.
There are two parking bays for the disabled by the lych gate in Chart Lane, and a slightly sloping uneven path up to the west door of the church. No steps into the church, but a few bumps over the threshhold into a flat seating area in the nave. There is a toilet for the disabled on the same level.
