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.

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
