The Lewes Singers is a small, occasional choir based in Lewes, East Sussex, directed by Nicholas Houghton.
We sing services at cathedrals, give occasional concerts and fund-raisers, and are available for weddings and functions.
We don’t meet regularly but we get together for two or three rehearsals before a date. Although the Lewes Singers only formed in 2004, many of us sang together before that over a number of years in various choirs throughout the South East, and some members are professional or semi-professional musicians. From a pool of about 30 members we usually field a choir of between 16 and 22 singers for a concert or cathedral visit. For weddings, a smaller group of five to eight singers tends work very well.
