We have around 30-40 members who enjoy singing an eclectic mix of music arranged for Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass. 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, through to more modern secular pieces of music such as Eric Whitacre’s Light and Gold.
We enjoy collaborating with local orchestras and schools, most recently with Froxfield & Steep primary schools for Alexander L’Estrange’s Zimbe and with Alton Concert Orchestra for an evening of Opera classics.
As well as two-three concerts each year, we also provide the choral element for at least one evensong in St Peter’s Church, High Cross, Froxfield.
The choir is available for weddings, funerals or other services – Please contact the Secretary for details.
History of the Choir
Froxfield Choir was formed in 1972 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 the annual Service of Lessons and Carols at Holy Trinity, Privett.
Following Elizabeth’s retirement, the choir enjoyed the musical direction of Nick Wilkes, Richard Smith and Richard McVeigh. Our current Music Director, Michael Servant, took the helm in July 2016 – see Music Director. He has been featured in an interview with Simon O’Hea from Music in Portsmouth which you can read here
