Formed in early 2013 by musician and choir leader Dominic Stichbury, Chaps Choir is a 60 strong male singing gang. Say goodbye to the male voice mould most would recognise and with it danny boy, green valleys and tradition.
The Chaps sing songs from across the world, combining surprising choices with deft arrangements, always with an added chappist twist. Prepare for snowy hunting calls, Manhattanite observations, self-aware pirates and, well, lots of men singing.
Since we first gathered, the Chaps have performed at the Southbank Centre, Natural History Museum, Serpentine Gallery, School Supper Club, Daylight Music, Shoreditch Church, The Young Vic Theatre and return regularly to our local Islington venue The Union Chapel.
