On a misty grey Saturday afternoon the choir gave the second of two lovely Christmas recitals, this time to an audience of young and old in front of Chartwell, once Winston Churchill's country home near Westerham. They were held spellbound by a wonderful rendition of John Peterson's Carol of Christmas and John Rutter's beautiful Angels' Carol. And from all over the hillside they joined in some of everyone's favourite carols. Some of those who watched had been lucky enough to attend our full concert the previous week in Kemsing - one of our best ever - and to get to know choir members better afterwards over a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie. Jackie, who has been to many of our concerts over the years, wrote that "the Singers lighted our way towards Christmas with a good dose of cheer and tuneful singing. I will most certainly attend at both events next year."
A medium-sized, mixed choir, we sing a wide range of good music from the classical, modern and popular genres. Why not come to one of our concerts or consider joining us as singer or supporter?

On 30 August 2021 we held our first public performance since the start of the pandemic, at the Otford Village Fete. After just a handful of rehearsals we sang some old favourites with a summer theme, including works by Cole Porter, Simon and Garfunkel, and John Rutter.
The audience loved the programme, singing along in places. Maybe we might get a few members as a result!
