Gone Viral – Live at Cadogan Hall Sun 24th April

Join us for “The Pink Singers: Gone Viral”: 7.00pm Sunday 24th April 2022 at The Cadogan Hall, 5 Sloane Terrace, London SW1X 9DQ. We’ll be giving away 1 in 10 tickets to LGBT+ charities including Opening Doors London. If you can’t attend but would still like to support us, you can buy tickets and we’ll donate them to someone who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to attend. See below for further details.

With “Gone Viral”, we will take you on a fun and emotional audio and visual journey. You’ll witness our transition to virtual choir, back to performing live again, whilst at the same time strengthening our community as a choir and beyond. Audience members will be immersed in the performance as we’ve never done before!

Repertoire will include the usual mix of popular music from the 1970s to present day as well as twists on classical favourites. Expect a capella, accompanied and our trademark choreographic showstoppers from our talented in-house team.

This will be the first time that a full choir will be back on stage since we performed our sell out concert and live album By Special Arrangement Part 2 in January 2020. We’ve waited a long time for this, and we can’t wait to unleash our irrepressible energy on you!

It’s our mission to increase access to music for all members of the LGBTQ+ community. For every 10 tickets we sell we are giving one away to charities including Opening Doors London. Come to our concert and not only will you have a great night out, but you’ll also help us reach more people who can’t usually come and hear us.

Can’t come to the concert but you’d still like to support us?

We know that for one reason or another not all our fans will be able to attend the concert, but that some of you might still want to show your support for the choir. At the same time for this concert we’d love to expand our reach to new audience members who have not been able to experience the Pink Singers in concert before. If you can’t make the concert but would like to show your continued support to the choir why not buy a ticket and we’ll donate it to someone who would not ordinarily be able to attend?

If you would like to do this, we’d be extremely grateful! To ensure your tickets are passed on, please do the following. Thank you!

  • Buy one or more tickets from the box office in the usual way
  • Send an email to publicity@pinksingers.co.uk titled “Gift tickets” telling us the name you booked the ticket(s) under and how many you are gifting.

We’ll be publishing more information during the build-up to the concert. Check out insider stories and the background to some of the repertoire choices.

Become a Finance Trustee

Finance trustee required

Now in our 37th year, the Pink Singers is a fun, friendly LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans) choir based in London. 

Pink Singers perform the Winter 2018 concert “A Night At The Movies: The Sequel” at Cadogan Hall, London, 20th January 2018

We have grown to 90 active members, we have been involved in some amazing projects with the LGBT+ community around the world and we continue to delight our audiences by improving the quality of our performances and broadening our repertoire. 

Following an extensive review our members voted to make some fundamental changes to how we run the choir and we have established a new Board of Trustees which has been in place for 9 months. We are now seeking to make an external appointment of a Finance Trustee onto our Board of Trustees.

We recently drafted a new constitution and are in the process of changing our structure from an Unincorporated Association to a Charity Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and are hoping to have approval from the Charities Commission later in 2020.

In the new structure existing choir members continue to manage day-to-day activities, whilst a group of up to 7 Trustees oversee our strategy and governance.

The new Board of Trustees includes at least one member of the current choir with most other Trustees coming from outside the current choir membership. 

We would particularly encourage applications from BAME / trans / non binary / female applicants to improve our intersectional diversity.

Time commitment

In the first year whilst the Board works with our current organisational team to develop a sustainable long term structure the time commitment may be around 5-10 hours per month, with this likely to reduce over time. 

Currently the Trustee Board meets monthly for 1 – 1.5 hours with Trustees either attending in person at Business in the Community (N1 7RQ) or virtually by telephone or video conferencing. We are aiming to reduce the frequency of these meetings once we are more set up and the change-over to a CIO has been completed. Between meetings Trustees are expected to complete agreed actions which might include involvement in projects the Pink Singers are undertaking, or in the case of the Finance Trustee scrutiny of the accounts with the choir Treasurer for example.
