King's Lynn Festival Chorus would like to wish all our members and supporters a happy and music-filled 2021.
Like so many other choirs across the country, we were unable to perform in Concert in 2020.
The virtual world has kept us going but we fervently hope we shall be able to sing to you sometime this year. Please keep checking our website, FB and Twitter feeds for updates or join our mailing list here:
OUR VIRTUAL CHOIR IS HERE!

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected everybody’s lives and KLFC has had to adapt and make some difficult decisions. The forced sudden curtailment of our activities in March 2020 and the cancellation of St Matthew Passion was a huge blow and disappointment.
Until we can safely meet together in person, the Chorus will be gathering ‘virtually’ on-line to rehearse.
Details of performances in the 2020 /21 season will be released as soon as conditions allow.
CALLING ALL SINGERS
Singing is good for your health - that’s now an established fact. Why don't you consider getting 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.
Normally, if you would like to try us out, we have suggested that you come along to our Monday evening rehearsals, mainly 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' and will be commencing the 2020/21 season with some weekly Zoom sessions.
If you are interested in joining us later in the season, then please contact the secretary for more details
