Who are we?
We are a community choir that loves to try out new (and often frankly outlandish) ideas, usually prepared for us by our inspirational and creative Music Director, Andy Whitfield.
What do we sing?
We love to perform music that challenges or surprises, as well as entertains. Audiences have been particularly delighted with our film/choral combos, where we sing our own soundtrack to classic films. Over the years our repertoire has included unexpected topics such as children's rights, autism, pregnancy, performing tracheotomies and solving the banking crisis! We also intersperse these original creations with new arrangements of more well-known tunes from Queen and The Kinks, through Joni Mitchell and the Beach Boys to Harold Arlen and Tom Lehrer. Read more about past projects.
Where do we sing?
We rehearse at the Gregson Centre, Lancaster. We perform about eight times a year; past gigs include the Sage Theatre Gateshead, Keswick and Whitby Film Festivals, halfway up Ingleborough, various streets and church halls and the good old Gregson itself.
Proceeds from our performances usually go to worthy causes. We often support Akany Avoko, a charity in Madagascar that has strong links with Lancaster.
If you would like us to bring one of our unique performances to your venue please get it touch. Our performance fee is £100.
