Skolia was formed in 2003 by our conductor and musical director Elizabeth de Lacey. The choir is made up of amateur singers local to the Notting Hill area. We meet regularly for rehearsals at St Peter's Church, Kensington Park Rd. A wide range of repertoire is studied in preparation for our 3 annual concerts. Depending on the repertoire the choir is frequently joined by a professional orchestra and soloists
Skolia return triumphant from the Manchester Amateur Choir Competition
MACC success
On Sunday 4th December 2011 Skolia set out at 7am from London to take part in the annual Manchester Amateur Choir Competition at the Royal Northern College of Music. The miserable weather didn't dampen their spirits. They competed against 11 other groups from across the country and their varied programme encompassing 4 languages impressed the judges so much that they came away with the winning trophy.
What the judges had to say.........
"...got the hairs on the back of my neck going..." "...Wonderful attention to detail and tuning..."
