OUR VIRTUAL CHOIR IS HERE!
Chorus members have been working hard to record some memorable pieces at home during 'lockdown'.

With great regret, KLFC have made the decision to cancel the performance of St Matthew Passion that had been tentatively moved from April 2020 to Lent 2021.
There is no real clarity about the length of the on-going COVID 19 risk and the safety of our choir members, audience and supporters remains paramount.
If you are holding on to a ticket for the St Matthew Passion Concert, originally programmed for 4th April 2020 and wish for a refund, please contact the King's Lynn Corn Exchange Box Office. Tel 01553 764864.
CALLING ALL SINGERS
Singing is good for your health - that’s now an established fact. Make a good start in 2020 and get together with like-minded folk from all walks of life, once a week for a choral workout during term time.
Putting us through our paces are two highly accomplished and experienced (and very kind!) professionals: Music Director, Tom Appleton and Assistant Music Director, Ben Horden. They check up on our voices when we join and it’s all very friendly and constructive.
Being the choir that we are, it helps if you can follow a musical score and keep in tune.
If you would like to try us out, please come along to our Monday evening rehearsals, usually held at Springwood High School, Queensway, King’s Lynn. 7.15pm to 9.40pm
At the moment though, all face to face rehearsals are cancelled until further notice. We shall monitor the Corona outbreak situation closely and keep you updated as to when we can meet again in person.
The chorus still has an opportunity to sing together though - virtually. We are now attempting our third virtual music piece that will be formed using our individual voices recorded at home then combined with the magic of technology. Our first effort from St Matthew Passion was aired on BBC Radio Norfolk on Easter Sunday morning.
If you are interested in joining us later in the year, then please contact the secretary for more details
