“Singing was daunting but felt good! A fun activity - I can see how it really lifts people’s spirits.”
Minds@work attendee


Our sessions will take you and your team on a musical journey. Led by our charismatic Segnos (pronounced ‘SEN-YO’, the name taken from musical notation) you will explore vocal expression, hone beautiful and often unexpected pieces to performance level, and get to know a new side to yourself and your colleagues. The on:song app accelerates learning, boosts confidence and makes your choir sound better, faster. You never knew you could sing this well.

George and Greg were lovely - charming and engaging. And of course I loved the singing element.

On:song was started in 2016 by two musicians, Greg and George.

Greg liked singing in choirs so much he started one, and then another. As well as regularly waving his arms at various groups of singers he has arranged and recorded choral music for Roxy Music, Channel 4’s Random Acts, The Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival, Escape Rooms and has also performed as a singer and musician at concerts and festivals across the country.

Following in the footsteps of a family rooted in the folk tradition, George plays a number of instruments and has performed all over the world. In recent times managing festivals around the arts and sustainability, and curating, programming and promoting musical projects for stages around the country from Glastonbury to the Southbank Centre. George is a proud 25m breaststroke badge holder.

In 2017 Greg and George set up the Music Halls project, repurposing stunning old buildings to be used as spaces for exceptional performance. Having established itself as a cultural driving force, The Music Halls project sits at the heart of Waltham Forest’s burgeoning cultural scene, and is proud to have been instrumental in the successful bid for Waltham Forest to become borough of culture in 2019.

We all know the value of a good leader, and where would a choir be without an inspiring conductor?
All our conductors, or segnos, come from a background in performance. On:song borrows from immersive theatre, improvisation, and celebrates freedom of self expression and inclusivity.
The segno symbol is musical notation which formed the inspiration for our logo,

Emma’s Story:

Choir has made a real positive impact on my life over the past few years. Initially friends convinced me to give it a go and the thought of an extra weekly commitment on top of my busy life didn’t seem that appealing at the time. But I clearly had no idea that it would become so important and dear to me.

I feel it’s become vital to my well-being and turned into exactly what I did need on top of my busy week. I really notice when I’ve missed choir. It’s so good for you on many levels.

It’s such a joy being part of this choir family. I love the variety of songs we sing and especially that we sing music from around the world.

Greg the choir master always greets you with warmth and a smile and I still can’t figure out how he gets us sounding so good. I also know we love making him smile when we finally crack it and a song starts sounding good.
