We put on 3 concerts a year in Halesworth. In our programmes we sing some of the great masterpieces of the choral repertoire. Our next concert this spring will include the Fauré Requiem and pieces by Bach and Duruflé.
Our musical director Philip Simms has enjoyed a long and successful career music-making. He played bass in the English Chamber Orchestra including many performances and recordings with Suffolk’s greatest composer, Benjamin Britten. Philip founded the Tallis Chamber Choir in 1982 preparing the choir for conductors such as Ashkenazy, Harnoncourt and Norrington. He took the helm at Halesworth Festival Voices after the death of our previous director Ian Humphris.
If you would like to join us at this exciting time, whether you are a soprano, alto, tenor or bass, and no matter what your experience of singing in choirs, we’d love to see you (Some competence in reading music is very helpful, as is a good "ear" and memory for music).
We practise from 7:15 to 9:15 pm (with a short break for refreshments) on Monday evenings in the room at the rear of the United Reform Church in Quay Street, Halesworth.
The new season starts on Monday 5th February. We’d love to see you! If for any reason you can’t make the 5th, please come on the 12th and we will bring you up to speed.
