We are a friendly choir of around 120 members of all ages. Under our Musical Director, Julian Merson, we achieve very high standards in our performances but the only qualification for membership is a love of singing.
Our repertoire is very varied, ranging from the classic works of Handel and Haydn to contemporary composers such as Jenkins, Rutter and Carter. We perform up to four concerts each year, one of which is our ever popular family Christmas Carol Concert.
For most of our concerts we have an excellent orchestra to accompany us, composed of local musicians of the highest standard. Over the years, the choir has seen many changes, and our links with tradition have also stretched to incorporate more contemporary ideas for the choir. Our annual Family Christmas Concert has included the St Ives Girls Choir, and more recently, Westfield Junior School Choir. The Christmas concert has become an annual 'landmark' which draws a lot of new faces into our audiences!
