Singology is a vocal coaching company founded by Mark De-Lisser in 2000 to provide singing opportunities and tuition to people of all ages.
The success of this first venture, and Mark’s passion for choir singing, led to the opening of the very first Singology Choir in 2004. Ever since, Singology Choirs have been growing in members and multiplying across London, and we now have nine branches opening their doors every week.
In 1991, nine friends came together to sing a few Christmas carols at Angel Underground Station hoping to raise a few pounds for the Terrence Higgins Trust. London was in the midst of the AIDS crisis and the men, who belonged to a social group called London Friend sang together to find a place of support, of friendship and of brotherhood. Little did they know what they had kickstarted.
Fast-forward 25 years, and this once small band of singers now calls itself the London Gay Men’s Chorus. Boasting over 200 members, the LGMC is the largest gay choir in Europe and regularly plays to sell-out crowds at Southbank Centre, Cadogan Hall and the Roundhouse.
Over the years, the chorus has been lucky enough to have worked with a diverse range of artists including pop stars Mark Ronson and Elton John, soprano Lesley Garrett, country legend Dolly Parton, musical theatre star Hannah Waddingham, actor Simon Callow and comedienne Sandi Toksvig. The LGMC has also appeared on Children In Need, Comic Relief, The One Show, The Graham Norton Show and Top of the Pops
Suicide kills around 18 a day in the UK. Most of those who die have sought but not found support and help. Suicide is the major single cause of death in men under the age of 49 in the UK, and there is an alarming increase in suicidal intentions amongst women.
Tongue & Groove's chosen charity for 2023 are The Listening Place which is a London based charity providing face-to-face support for those who feel life is no longer worth living.
Tongue & Groove will be rasing money at this concert by running a charity bake stall and there will be a collection at the end of the performance.
