Singing at the Otford Village Fete, August 2021

On Saturday May 18th we Remembered the Sixties in our Diamond Jubilee concert, celebrating six decades of 'fun and fine singing' since the choir was founded by Tom Denyer in 1964.

A highlight of the evening was the world premiere of Josie Black's new 1964 Medley, an exhilarating romp through ten hits of that year. And from the Beatles to the Beach Boys, My Fair Lady to Mary Poppins, a packed hall enjoyed a programme of Kemsing Singers favourites from sixty years ago. It was fitting that founder member Robin Edmunds had the honour of cutting the anniversary cake.

Read about our history.

We are a friendly, mixed choir of about 50 singers celebrating our Diamond Jubilee in 2024. Our motto is "Fun and Fine Singing" and our aim is to sing well and enjoy doing so. We give public performances in the Kemsing and Sevenoaks area under our Musical Director, Sara Kemsley, with pianist Peter Young. We also sing occationally at fetes and festivals and for weddings or funerals. We have a very competitive subscription for members but still raise money for charity and use professional soloists each season. Read all about us and how you can join.
New members are always welcome.

The choir's large repertoire includes major choral classics, but we are not a choral society. Our programmes are built to a theme and consist of several shorter items in a range of styles. Many of these pieces are on the lighter side of classical music or are contemporary arrangements of songs and carols with opera and musicals also represented. Singers and audiences alike enjoy the variety.


Kemsing Singers recently took part in OUPs 100th Anniversary celebration by learning and recording Bob Chilcott’s song called Rhythm.  Here is the link to our version
