Hi, I’m Jamie Read and I am so excited to be running the Thatcham Musical Theatre Choir!

I have lived in the area for 18 years with my wife, Helen, and for 11 years we ran a theatre school in the town for children whilst I was commuting in and out of London performing in West End shows.

I love sharing the joy of singing with people of all ages and abilities which is why I’m so thrilled to be building this choir and I really look forward to seeing you there!


Over two decades Jamie Read has played leading roles in the West End and internationally including sharing the stage of the National Theatre with Dame Judi Dench. For 14 years he was Artistic Director and Head of Singing at READ College in Berkshire. He is an award-winning entrepreneur in the arts, and is director of The Voice Teacher Ltd - a network of professional vocal coaches based across the UK and Europe. He has two Post Graduate Masters-level qualifications in vocal pedagogy, and has worked with hundreds and hundreds of singers of all levels across the years.

WHAT MAKES OUR CHOIRS SPECIAL

The Sing Space musical theatre choirs offer singers at all levels the opportunity to experience the joy of singing original musical theatre arrangements with like-minded musical theatre lovers. No audition needed for the regional choirs.

Led by qualified vocal coaches, you will benefit from expert and well-executed vocal technique instruction and learn how to use and develop your voice safely and effectively.

This is a musical theatre choir - we only sing songs from musical theatre. We are not an amateur dramatic society, so there’s no dancing or costumes.

The Sing Space musical theatre choirs offer performance opportunities throughout the year, ranging from local venues to iconic spaces such as Cadogan Hall in London. There are also opportunities to sing solos and/or in small groups, in a safe and supportive environment.

We recognise that members learn in different ways and come from a diverse range of musical backgrounds. With that in mind, we offer a multi-channel learning experience. You will learn new pieces each week with the guidance of your choir leader and be provided with sheet music to follow. You can support your learning between choir sessions using your vocal guide tracks and/or YouTube lyric/audio guide videos.

We know life can get busy and you won’t always be able to make every choir session. Each session is live-streamed through your choir’s Facebook group for you to watch in real-time or later at your own convenience, so no-one will feel they are falling behind.

Group singing offers mental health and wellbeing benefits, such as reducing stress and supporting social connection. The Sing Space choirs are a supportive and inclusive community.
