The aim of Higham Choral Group is to provide an opportunity to those members of the community, who wish to do so, to come together and sing and, by giving concerts, to raise money for charity.

Higham Choral Group was founded in 1962 by a small but keen group of singers, some of which are still singing with us today. The group has now grown somewhat to around thirty members, ranging in age from their twenties to their seventies.

To celebrate our Richard Shackleton's 25th year as the group's musical director, the 2015 Spring, Summer and Christmas concerts will all be held in our village of Higham. The summer concert, in particular, celebrated Richard's 25 years and included some of his own special favourite pieces.   Richard has been a dedicated and inspirational leader of the choral group and has improved the standard of singing, year after year, enabling us to tackle very challenging choral music both old and contemporary.

The Group rehearses every Monday evening at Higham Congregational Chapel, School Lane, Higham, near Rochester, Kent. We perform regularly in local churches in the area at Christmas, Easter, during the summer and at other times when the opportunity arises. Occasional guest organists, soloists and string quartets join in with our concerts.
Higham Group goes on tour during May each year to sing at festivals and other events.
