History of Senza Nome

Senza Nome is a young mixed choir of some 20 voices, with members from Coventry, Birmingham, Leamington Spa and Rugby. It started as a quartet in 2008 soon became a small choir.
It started with the choir singing during the services at the Polish church in Coventry but quickly expanded its repertoire and activity giving concerts in other places as well. Their 2016/2017 calendar is now packed with events.

In 2010 Senza Nome organised their first concert in Coventry and then some members of the choir represented the Polish community in Coventry at the annual International Choir Festival in Koszalin Poland, where they met Polish choirs from all over the world. The choir now performs in Coventry and other cities in the country.

In 2012 it took part in the spectacular Godiva Awakes project which was part of the 2012 Cultural Olimpiad.

By 2013 Senza Nome started to cooperate with the English choir The Nightingales (directed by Pat Trickett) which has led to them performing together in many concerts.

In 2014 Senza Nome invited Concerto Glacensis, a Polish choir from Klodzko . With the Nightingales the three choirs took part in the Carols Festival organised by Senza Nome.

In 2015 the choir sang for the Polish Ambassador and then got invited to perform at the official Christmas party at the Polish Embassy in London.

In 2016 Senza Nome got invited again to sing at the stunning Ealing Abbey in London during the mass to celebrate the 1050 Jubilee Anniversary of Christening of Poland. They also performed at Belgrade Theatre where they took part in Diversity Rocks – the concert organised by BBC Coventry&Warwickshire. Also in 2016 Senza Nome was a part of a big choir and performed before the Four Nations Rugby match at the Ricoh Arena in front of thousands of rugby fans.

In December 2016 Senza Nome was even on ITV News, singing some Christmas songs.

The choir joined the Coventry Association For International Friendship, their musical director becoming a member of CAIF committee. The choir look at this membership as an ambitious opportunity to fulfil their plans and open new doors and prospects.
