Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website of the Fakenham Choral Society.
Our choir is based in Fakenham - a living, working, energetic market town in North Norfolk. We welcome anyone of any age who loves to sing.
Our aim is to bring the pleasure of live, large-scale choral music-making to a wide public. And, of course, to have a wonderful time while we're doing that.
The choir has about 100 members from the town and surrounding villages and we meet to rehearse every Tuesday evening, from September to
June, at the Salvation Army Hall, Oak Street, Fakenham, from 7.30pm to 9.15pm.
We give a minimum of three concerts a year, usually at Fakenham Parish Church, but we have also sung at churches in Blakeney, Cley,
Wells-next-the-Sea and King's Lynn. The choir's repertoire embraces both sacred and secular music, and we have performed with a succession of
distinguished soloists and orchestras.
FCS was founded in 1973 and today is led with great enthusiasm, expertise and flair by musical director Janet Kelsey.
Recent concert highlights have included Will Todd's Mass in Blue, the Mozart Requiem, Bach's Magnificat, Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle, the Verdi Requiem, Mozart's Mass in C Minor,
John Rutter's Requiem, Britten's Saint Nicolas, the Brahms German Requiem, A Night at the Opera and Songs from the Musicals.
The choral society has in recent years attracted funding from the National Lottery, from its own active association of Friends and from a
network of corporate sponsors pleased to be associated with a successful local enterprise.
The Tuesday evening rehearsals are challenging, invigorating, informative and, most of all, great fun. Janet is brilliantly assisted by
the choir's accompanist Jim Laird.
Fakenham Choral Society prides itself on providing a warm welcome to all new members so, if you think you would like to join the choir,
do come along and give us a try. Please contact Fiona Thompson, FCS secretary, on 01328 830639, or contact us via this website.
