A medium-sized, mixed choir, we sing a wide range of good music from the classical, modern and popular genres. Why not come to one of our concerts or consider joining us as singer or supporter? We would love to see you.  And you can read all about the choir here.

New members are always welcome.

On Zoom

SINGING IN LOCKDOWN

As we look back on ten months of virtual rehearsals and no concerts, we can only hope that 2021 will keep us all safe, and bring us together again before too long. For now our weekly choir Zoom get togethers continue with a focus on enjoying professional performances of the pieces and learning more about what makes them distinctive. 

Each fortnight we look at a different musical period, and in between times it's good to get together socially.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could share it with an audience in the spring? Watch this space...


And in the meantime, if you've missed hearing us sing, here is a performance of one of our favourite pieces by singer/songwriter and one-time member Peter Skellern.  It is called A Prayer

We came, and we sang...

The last time most of the choir got together was our choral workshop, attended by 35 singers last March. It was a great success and we sang some very enjoyable and at times challenging music. 


Barbara: "I did enjoy our Sing Day and being able to put a few more names to the faces we see every week.  Thank you to Sara for leading us, to Peter and to the Committee for the organising and to the bakers for those cakes!" 


We worked on Bruckner, Poulenc, Verdi, Pergolesi and Gershwin in four hours.  Here is a taste of Summertime in progress!
