Telephone: 07941 946704

Chairman: Kirsty Meik

Secretary: Gay Wilson

Although we are called The Elizabethan Singers our repertoire goes far beyond music from the 16th and 17th centuries.  We really enjoy singing this, but equally we love a wide range of music from the Baroque period to the present day.

We have a large sacred repertoire, and in recent concerts have sung Vivaldi’s Gloria, Fauré’s Requiem and Dvořák’s Mass in D.

A particular passion is singing high quality harmony arrangements of 20th century popular music.  This includes songs from the golden era of Broadway, including the unforgettable music of Gershwin and Cole Porter.

Whatever our programme, our aim is to make music expressive, exciting and accessible through enthusiastic, vibrant performances.

We are always looking for new members who share our passion.

For information, bookings and membership details, please contact the Musical Director.

Let your light shine!!

The aim of Sleaford's community choir is to form a three or four-part choir which is self-funded.
Sleaford's new community choir is open to all comers, young and old, experienced and new to share the joy of singing and promote a true community spirit.
There are no auditions, but the goal is to always improve on quality of sound and repertoire. 
As a singing teacher/ vocal coach of more than 30 year's experience, it is my wish to encourage good quality singing and pass on to the singers, vocal techniques that will aid them to progressively take on a wider repertoire of choral music both sacred and secular including musical theatre.
Let your voice be heard.
