ABOUT US

Froxfield Choir was formed in 1976 by Elizabeth Gotto and she continued to direct the choir, with a short break while she was abroad, until 2004. She is still an active supporter of the choir and for many years conducted us in the Service of Lessons and Carols at Holy Trinity, Privett.

Following Elizabeth’s retirement the choir was led initially by Nick Wilkes and then for eight years by Richard Smith. From January 2014 we were led for two and a half years by Richard McVeigh. In July 2016 we were delighted to welcome our new Music Director, Michael Servant – see Music Director.

We have around 45 members and our repertoire extends from the great choral works, such as Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s Magnificat in D major and David Fanshawe’s African Sanctus, to lesser known pieces. As well as two or three major concerts each year, we also lead at least one Evensong service in St Peter’s church in High Cross, Froxfield.

The choir is occasionally available for weddings, funerals or other services. Please contact the Secretary for details.
