Sutton Melody (formerly Sutton Choral), as it is known locally, has been a Choral Society since the early 1960s. One of our well remembered Musical Directors was Joan McCourt whom I am sure some of you will remember.
We still have some of our founder members! Our repertoire covers a wide range of music from religious, musicals, films and modern songs. We have even had a go at singing in Italian and Latin. Last year we sang ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to commemorate 150 years since the publishing of this story by author Lewis Carroll. This short musical was composed by our musical director.
The choir is a mixed choir - sopranos, contraltos, tenors and bass and we welcome any new member to come and join us and enjoy the fun of singing and the challenge of trying out new songs.
REHEARSALS take place St. John’s every Monday evening 7p.m. to 9 p.m. Fees are £10 per calendar month. We welcome new members - come along and give it a go. Singing can be fun!!
Robert has been with us since 2013, he attended Keble College, Oxford where he gained his degree in music. He now lives in Lincoln and is well known as a composer and also conducts the University of Lincoln Orchestra. He has composed music for the percussionist Evelyn Glennie and for the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. We are extremely fortunate to have such an experienced musician as our musical director. He makes singing so much fun and encourages us to sing a wide variety of music
