Hello Dear Guests, Visitors, Curious Ones... Dear Singers!


Alexandra Chorus is getting ready to resume sessions on Wednesday 7 September at 6.45pm if you want to warm up. Our sessions start at 7pm and we welcome anyone who would like to take the plunge and attend 2 FREE trials with us !


In order to make your visit and your whole experience event more pleasant,

we thought you would like to get familiar with the first piece of music we will be working on this season :

Hymne à la Nuit by Rameau,

arrangement for 3 parts inspired by the version of the French movie ‘Les Choristes’.

So please, visit the page we specially edited for you on our website 

- it will be updated during the whole first term which is open door.


Do not hesitate to come,

spread the word, invite a friend if you prefer not come alone or just want to share the joy :)

We are looking forward to seeing you soon !

In the meantime, if you have any question, do not hesitate to get back to me.


Best wishes…



Alexandra Chorus' Musical Director & Conductor

A master of the tenor sax, Mornington Lockett fuses his unique style with Kate William’s graceful and uptempo swing, joined by Stu Butterfield’s highly established beats and a touch of Green’s responsive playing. A quartet not to be missed, this is your weekly dose of smooth and soulful jazz.

Mornington Lockett has been described by Time Out as “one of the country’s most acomplished contemporary improvisers…with a fearsome technique and an advanced harmonic approach” so make sure to catch him at this local gig while you can. Performing alongside him, the equally talented Kate Williams, an elegant player with subtle touches and storytelling vibes. Highly respected and award winning players Dave Green and Stu Butterfield will also be accompanying to complete this quartet.

Mornington Lockett (tenor sax), Kate Williams (piano), Dave Green (bass), Stu Butterfield (drums)

The wee band is the quartet of trumpeter Henry Lowther, guitarist Jim Mullen, bassist Dave Green and drummer Stu Butterfield, and “great” is a fair description of it. They're back at Karamel after a packed night last season, bringing their experienced and melodic tunes.

Founded in 1999, the band has had two albums shortlisted for UK Jazz Record of the Year.

With 2 of the musicians coming from Muswell Hill, this is a great opportunity, to see and support local, and nationally renown, brilliant musicians!

“Perfect small band jazz. Only the very best and most mature musicians can achieve this degree of simplicity, in which every tiny nuance counts” – Dave Gelly, The Observer


“A Quartet of formidable talents who mean everything they play. A definite contender for record of the year” – Mark Gardner – Jazz Journal.

Henry Lowther (trumpet), Jim Mullen (guitar), Dave Green (bass) and Stu Butterfield (drums)
