CALLING ALL SINGERS


NEW YEAR, NEW RESOLUTIONS

 

Singing is good for your health - that’s now an established fact. 
Make a good start in 2020 and get together with other like minded folk, from all walks of life, once a week for a choral workout during term time. 

Putting us through our paces are our 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 a tune.

A big and important gig this term is a performance of the mighty St Matthew Passion, in its original language, with double Chorus and double Baroque orchestra. A giant of a work and a gleaming jewel of the entire choral repertoire. This work is not often performed, especially in this part of Norfolk.

If you would like to try us out, please come along to the first of our Monday evening rehearsals on 6th January 2020 at Springwood High School, Queensway, King's Lynn. 7.15pm - 9.40pm

 Contact the secretary for more details. 

 

Who we are

culminating in a performance on the King's Lynn Tuesday Market Place to raise money for the charity Shelter and raise awareness of the homelessness crisis. See our video with seagull and blustery wind sound effects here:

HERE'S A CHALLENGE!

As well as our efforts to support the charity Shelter this year, KLFC is presently trying to raise £4000 towards the performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion next spring. 

We salute our Music Director Tom, who in July completed his two day, 55 mile sponsored walk from Bury St Edmunds to St Nicholas' Chapel in King's Lynn. A wonderful achievement with proceeds going towards the SMP fund.  Please contact us if you want to find out how you can support KLFC and this very special concert.
Thank you.
