About the Choir
The Lindow Singers is an enthusiastic mixed voice choir of around 40 singers. The choir was founded in 1964 by a group of friends in Wilmslow, who met near Lindow Common. Since then the choir has grown but the aim of singing for fun and friendship remains core.
The choir gives four main concerts a year, in the Wilmslow, Handforth and Alderley Edge areas, and also at the RNCM. We sing a range of music, both sacred and secular. Our conductor for many years was Russell Medley who has now retired from the choir and we are pleased to welcome Charlie Perry as our new conductor.Our accompanist is Richard Brocklehurst.
From time to time we join forces with other Choral Societies to perform larger works. We have built up a strong partnership with Sale Choral Society and this gives us the opportunity to perform a wide selection of works with orchestra. We have also been pleased to take part in joint concerts with Sale Gilbert and Sullivan Society and with local bands.
To celebrate our 50th Anniversary we commissioned a work, ‘Spirit of Lindow’, from Sasha Johnson Manning, composer of the Manchester Carols, and we featured this in our November and June concerts during the year.
Social activities add to our enjoyment. They include an annual dinner and a summer barbecue.We are still a friendly group and are happy to welcome singers who would like to join us.
The choir is a registered charity, no 1101392, is associated with Making Music, and is supported by the Evans Arts Trust and Cheshire East Council.
