Who are on:song?
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 (recently performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall), 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.
George has over 15 years industry experience across a broad range of musical, cultural and ethnomusicological projects. As a musician he has toured all over the world, and highly values having his experiences ‘from both sides of the microphone.’ George comes from a long family line of proud folk musicians. Indeed, as well as spending many months exploring the antarctic ice shelf in a tiny tent with Scott and Shackleton, great grandfather Barne spent two years entertaining the crew of the icebound Discovery on the fiddle.
In 2017 Greg and George set up the Music Halls project, repurposing stunning old buildings to be used as spaces for live 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 have a strong 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,
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.
