Preparations to mark our Tenth Anniversary are underway. To start, in early spring we will record our third album - a selection of favourites from our recent repertoire, including David Bowies' 'Space Oddity', Elbow's anthemic 'One Day Like This' and Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'. In all ten songs will be recorded, all to a cappella arrangements, many by our Musical Director, Ben Crawley.


In July, and for the first time, the Choir will perform a concert at the Abbots Langley Festival. We will be joined by the Harrow Apollo Male Choir whose contrasting tone and repertoire provides the ideal accompaniment for an enjoyable evening's entertainment.


The Steiner School Theatre is the setting in late October for our Tenth Anniversary concert. This promises to be a significant occasion with more details to be published in due course. Guest choir for this evening will be Lumina who, again, will provide a contrast in style and repertoire.


Meanwhile, we will also be singing throughout the year at many of our established annual events. The confirmed programme to date is set out on the 'Performances' page of this website, and expect more to be added as the year progresses.


A forty-five minute set for Lobby Live at the Watford Colosseum and a one hour performance in the Marlowes Shopping Centre, Hemel Hempstead completed the Choir's pre-Easter programme. Both events gathered appreciative audiences who clearly enjoyed the Choir's style and repertoire. The Choir nominated The Hospice of St Francis as its charity for the Marlowes event and over £100 was raised.

The Choir launched into the New Year at the Beaconsfield Festival of Choirs in early March. An audience which included singers from as distant as Abertillery and County Sligo heard new numbers in the Choir's repertoire - Sir Arthur Sullivan's 'The Long Day Closes' and Slovakian drinking song 'Ani Vodka' mixed with the fiery Israeli folk song 'Simi Jadech' and a haunting version of Paul McCartney's 'Let It Be'.

The spring season continued in May with a first time appearance in London's world famous Cadogan Hall; the venue for this year's Sangerstevne international choir festival. In the company of choirs from the USA, Lithuania and Rumania KLCC performed four songs including a successful first outing for Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'.


The following day the choir entertained an enthusiastic crowd gathered for the annual Rickmansworh Festival, and that was followed a week later by a special engagement at a wedding which included serenading the bride as she entered and walked down the aisle.

In June KLCC raised funds for the British Heart Foundation with two half hour sets at the intuWatford Shopping Centre.

'Autumn Colours', a concert at All Saints Church, Kings Langley, kick-started the Choir's autumn season. This was also the opportunity for a first performance airing of new songs in the Choir's repertoire. 'The Wreck of the Dandenong', an Australian sea shanty, the Fleet Foxes 'Sun Giant' and the motown hit 'You Can't Hurry Love'; all received a positive audience response.


Chesham Germains Male Voice Choir entertaind for the first half of the evening, and over £500 was raised for the Church Mission.


The Christmas spirit really got underway with Choir's traditional performance at the Kings Langley Christmas Festival in early December. On a dank evening the music entertained and sustained a large audience throughout the half hour set.





Two further concerts followed, the first at Christ Church, Chorleywood and lastly at Holy Trinity Church, Leverstock Green in the annual fundraiser for Age UK Dacorum. At both events further new songs were unveiled, including a haunting version of the traditional English folk song 'The Snow It Melts The Soonest'.
