Goodbye to our MD Kevin Morgan

Sadly, our Musical Director, Kevin Morgan, has decided to step down from his post due to pressure of other commitments and he feels now is the time to move on. We are very grateful for his hard work with the Society over the last 3 years. Having taken up the MD post in 2020, he got us back singing after our 18 month break during the Covid pandemic and we have successfully performed our last 7 concerts under his guidance. We wish him well in his future endeavours.

We are a friendly & welcoming choir…

One aim of the Society is “To offer training in choral singing whilst exploring a wide repertoire of choral music and promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of singing”. We hope that we are achieving that aim.

Thanks to everyone who attended our performance celebrating English Choral Music.  This is our choir singing ‘Ave Verum’ – by Mozart at Rossall Chapel in April, It was a thrilling concert.

Fleetwood Choral Society

We regularly perform major sacred
choral works:

Oratorios such as Messiah Handel, Creation Haydn, requiems by Mozart, Brahms and Faure, the glorias of Rutter and Vivaldi and masses by established composers. Additionally, we like to offer our audiences other great music from the choral repertory: Hubert Parry’s Blest pair of sirens, Coleridge-Taylor’s Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast and Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer have recently been performed.

In our range of musical styles we include popular opera choruses such as Verdi: March of the Hebrew Slaves, the Anvil Chorus and also popular songs and arrangements of Let’s Do It Cole Porter, Bridge Over Troubled Water Paul Simon, I Got Rhythm George and Ira Gershwin and The Way We Were Marvin Hamlisch.

We currently have over 60 members singing standard SATB parts and perform concerts throughout the year with an invited professional orchestra and soloists performing a wide range of works.

This is our choir singing ‘Zadok the Priest’.
