The choir at our Summer Medley Concert at Framingham Pigot Church June 29th 2018
Welcome to the Framingham Earl Singers website. You will be able to find out more about the choir, our concert details and how to join the choir.
The choir was formed in September 1994 and we meet every Monday evening during term time in the Music Room at Framingham Earl High School from 7.15pm-9.15pm. Our conductor is Jacob Swindells and our accompanist is Jo Richards. We are happy to see new members and we do not audition. Our Autumn term starts on Monday 10th September 2018
We perform a wide range of music from Brahms to The Beatles in a variety of venues. These include FEHS, The Castle Mall, numerous local churches – including weddings, village halls, private gardens and Norwich Cathedral.
Since Jacob and Jo joined us in January we are enjoying a new approach to our singing which everyone agrees has improved our performances.Our April concert was An Evening of French Gems with an invited orchestra. It included Charpentier’s Te Deum, Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and music by Janequin and Coulais. Jo and Jacob played selections from Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite and Jo performed an organ solo.
This summer we have been “on tour”to Caistor St Edmunds, Framingham Pigot and Shotesham All Saints! All were held on warm and sunny summer evenings in beautiful Norfolk churches. We sang a medley of items from Locus Iste to West Side Story.
Our Christmas concert will be at The Central Baptist Church on Saturday 8th December. We will also be at Framingham Earl Church to sing at their Carol service on Sunday 9th December.
We have a prepared repertoire of music that we can sing at weddings. Our fee for singing varies depending on what you require. We can sing to support congregational hymns, perform 2 or 3 pieces during the signing of the register and also offer additional music for 15 mins before the service begins.
If you require an organist we can sometimes arrange this too but there would be an extra charge which would be negotiated at the present Church of England or other denominational rates.
We are happy to sing at concerts and other events and prices will be negotiated on each individual request.
