We have a group for Choral Singing which joins with the RICS Singers.

The RICS Singers are based at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Parliament Square, London SW1P 3AD. They provide members with an opportunity to sing together and welcome ICE members, family and friends to participate.

The choir sang at the annual ICE/RICS Carol Service at St Margaret’s Westminster Abbey on Monday  9 December 2019.

The Livery Company Carol Service at St Lawrence Jewry was held on Tuesday 17th December 2019.

New choir members are welcome, rehearsal details will be available nearer the time.

Rehearsals are guided by the choir master Bill Gloyn assisted by Michael Chapman, captured below in full flow at rehearsal.


A reasonable proficiency at reading music, excellent pitch and good voice is required which, with rehearsal, will hit most of the notes correctly!

For those eager to try out their singing elsewhere, why not visit the City Chorus in London. Their website is and enquiries are to Dionne at  [email protected] Their musical director is Paul Ayres and they rehearse close to Bank Tube station.

Now, it’s your turn. If you are interested in Choral Singing please contact me for more information about participating in events.
