Singology is a vocal coaching company setup by Mark De-Lisser in 2000 to provide singing opportunities and tuition to people of all ages. With a strong tradition of choral singing, Singology has now launched ‘Singology Choirs’ to encourage more and more people to get involved in community singing, which has been proven to increase confidence, social cohesion and can also be used as a diversionary activity for young people in the community.
Mark De-Lisser, Singology’s director, is a renowned vocal coach and choir director who led The ACM Gospel Choir to the semi-finals of Last Choir Standing on BBC1 in 2008 and is currently a voice coach on The Voice, BBC1. He has always had a vision to develop choirs across the country and this vision is now sweeping throughout London and the South East. He explained on opening the first of the local community choirs in Sydenham back in 2011....
“Growing up in South London myself, I really want to start some choirs in this region to sing a wide range of music styles from Pop to Rock, Glee to Soul and Musical Theatre to my personal favorite Gospel”, says De-Lisser. His plan doesn’t stop there. He is keen to have many London choirs in the North, South, East and West of the capital, who all come together to sing in a future planned major extravaganza each year. “I have always wanted to experience and maybe even conduct 1000 voices, young and old, singing in one place and so my desire is that we can make this happen in the London Region bringing all the local choirs together once a year. That would be incredible”
The Singology Gospel Choir (Central London) has gone from strength to strength since opening its doors in 2004 and Sydenham was a fitting addition, but it really hasn't stopped there! Since, Singology have opened its doors to choirs in North and West London and even as far as Essex! Ever expanding, there is sure to be one in your area soon!
