In these trying times, we can't do the things we would normally do, but we can do the things we normally wouldn't do! ~ a lovely quote from a friend that certainly is fitting.
AHA: Milton

Do you love to sing? Even if you don't but are just looking for a social evening each with with tea and biscuits, then join AHA today! There's now two choirs to choose between and a whole heap of fun to be had!

AHA and AHA: Milton are both small, unaccompanied, community choirs for anyone over the age of 7, based in South Oxfordshire. Whether you read music or not, whether you think you can sing or not, there's no need to worry! All songs are taught by ear and repetition in a relaxed and encouraging environment.

As the founder of this choir, Charlotte manages all aspects herself, whether that be musical director, administrator, budgeter, publicist, manager and many other roles that need undertaking. Focusing on acappella singing, Charlotte aims to teach a range of different songs to the groups. Please keep reading to find out more about the group and the songs we have worked on!

If you are interested please come along or contact Charlotte at

If you would like to see AHA come to an area closer to you, please get in touch, as Charlotte is eager to expand AHA!

A cappella Choir in Appleford AHA Acappella

acapella groups in South Oxfordshire AHA Acappella



This choir formed as an expansion of Acappella Harmonies in Appleford at the beginning of November 2018, so is still brand new! The aim going forward and the focus of rehearsals so far, is to work in 4-part harmonies. The group is still small but we are always looking to recruit new members.

The group have worked incredibly hard over the last month as we work primarily on Christmas material. In the new year we aim to cover more traditonal and classical pieces of music. As with AHA, Charlotte likes the choir to suggest music to work on, so everyone gets the chance to sing a song they have requested as well as a selection that Charlotte has picked. For a more detailed list of the music we have explored, please see below.

As mentioned above, this Abingdon based community choir is open to anyone whether you regard yourself as a singer or not. We learn and grow together. All songs are taught by ear but if you prefer to follow the sheet music, the option is available.
