Frodsham and District Choral Society

 

Frodsham & District Choral Society is a thriving, friendly, non-audition mixed voiced choir of nearly 100 singers of all ages. Founded in 1970 by a group of enthusiastic amateur singers, six of whom are still in the choir, 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.

On Saturday 24th March, 2018 at 7.30pm in St Laurence’s Church, Frodsham, we shall be performing the final concert in our World War 1 commemoration series. ‘A Song of Thanksgiving’ will feature Rutter’s Requiem, Sullivan’s Festival Te Deum and Vaughan Williams’ A Song of Thanksgiving with soprano soloist Lynne Rogers.

At the Singathon, we will be singing some favourite short choral works, including Karl Jenkins’ poignant ‘Benedictus’ and ‘Agnus Dei’ from The Armed Man, the stirring Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves by Verdi, John Rutter’s The Lord Bless you and Keep You and versions of The Lord is my Shepherd, including Howard Goodall’s, which is familiar to many as the theme from The Vicar of Dibley.
