Plans for 2014 and beyond

Happy New Year! It’s been a lovely Christmas season from a concert point of view, and although we weren’t officially performing Nick did form up a vocal ‘octet’ to sing at the biennial Amnesty International Benefit Concert, ‘In the bleak Midwinter’, at St John’s Sub Castro in Lewes just before Christmas.

Clive Osgood’s Miserere Mei – video

We shot a little video at the rehearsal for our concert the other week – here’s Clive’s brilliant Miserere mei which he wrote especially for us. This is the third time we’ve performed it.

We have a number of rehearsal days planned in January and…

This choir is really great – but you didn’t hear it from me

We managed to get our best audience ever (I think) for Sunday’s concert. You might think that it’s easy for a group called The Lewes Singers to pull in the crowds in its home town. But it’s not – there’s a lot of competition (for example, a big concert in the town hall the night…
