Frodsham and District Choral Society

Picture2

Frodsham & District Choral Society is a thriving, friendly, non-audition mixed voiced choir of over 110 singers of all ages. Founded in 1970 by a group of enthusiastic amateur singers, our repertoire ranges from the great classical choral works to modern contemporary pieces. Under the skilled direction of Howard Kane, who was appointed musical director in 2008 and ably assisted by Robert Woods, the choir has grown in size and reputation.

We rehearse from September through to July for our four main concerts, which are held in Frodsham, and also take our music to other venues in the area. Groups of singers from within the choir are available to sing at weddings and the choir regularly puts on events to raise money for local charities.

Monday nights are rehearsal nights which are held in Frodsham Methodist Church from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. New members are welcome to come along and give us a try.

Our next concert “Goin’ Home”, conducted by Howard Kane with Robert Woods on the organ, is on Saturday 19th March, 2016 at 7.30pm at St Laurence’s Church, Frodsham and will feature Dvorak’s Te Deum; Goin’ Home: a choral version of the theme from his New World Symphony and Fauré’s Requiem. We will be joined by soprano Helen Massey and bass Terence Ayebare.

At the Singathon, we will be singing choral favourites including choruses from Haydn’s ‘Creation’, Fauré’s ‘Requiem’, the Military Wives hit ‘Wherever you are’ plus a beautiful piece by the Scottish composer James Macmillan, ‘O Radiant Dawn’ and finally ‘Frodsham 800: We live here still’, composed by Matt Baker to words by former Cheshire Poet Laureate, Andrew Rudd which the choir commissioned to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Frodsham being granted a civic charter.
