The Kelsborrow Choir takes its name from Kelsborrow Hill, a feature of the village of Kelsall near Chester in the county of Cheshire where the choir was founded in 1956 by a group of parents from the local primary school to support PTA activities and fund-raising. In 2006 the Choir celebrated its 50th Anniversary
Rapidly outgrowing its original purpose, the 58-strong mixed voice Choir is now firmly established on the Chester musical scene and performs regularly, both locally and internationally. Members are drawn from throughout the surrounding area.
A registered charity, the Kelsbo:rrow Choir gives concerts in support of local and national charities.
Their repertoire is extensive: from oratorio - Messiah, Vivaldi Gloria and Fauré's Requiem - to opera, light opera, spirituals, musicals and folk song, performing music by composers ranging over the centuries through Orlando di Lasso, Thomas Morley, Dvorak, Peter Maxwell Davies, Karl Jenkins, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Burt Bacarach and Josh Groban.
The Choir is available for charity fund-raising events, weddings and similar social functions. Why not book the Choir for your event?
