Over more than forty years, Lancaster Singers has grown to a 70 strong mixed-voice choir. What unites them is a love of music and performance and the pursuit of musical excellence.
All of the choir have had a short, informal audition and although some musical literacy is required they believe the variety of their musical backgrounds adds to the diversity and flexibility of the group. They perform works from the Renaissance to the present day, including new commissions.
Over the years they have included most of the great choral masterpieces. They perform as an ‘a capella’ group through to large scale works with orchestra. They give five or six concerts a year, which are held in a variety of venues ranging from large concert halls, where they perform with professional orchestras and soloists to tiny village churches.
They usually meet for practices on Tuesdays during the academic terms at Lancaster University Chaplaincy Centre at 7.30-9.30pm.
Their current Musical Director is Duncan Lloyd and our accompanist is Ian Tate. Former Musical Directors were the founder Ian Hare, followed by Denis McCaldin and Marco Fanti.
