Parbold Chamber Choir
Parbold Chamber Choir is a group of around thirty singers who rehearse and perform under the musical direction of Jim Cooke. We are a group of enthusiastic amateurs who thoroughly enjoy singing in harmony. We are led by very capable professional musicians who help us attain high standards in our performances. The choir has a diverse repertoire which includes sacred and secular music.
We aim to perform 3 concerts a year. We enjoy sharing music with our audiences, whether they are seasoned concert-goers or first time listeners. Our concert diary is varied and interesting, often combining popular choral favourites with less well known pieces.
Our Easter and autumn concerts are from the classical repertoire. In contrast, our summer concerts tend to be more light-hearted. Some of our concerts have orchestral accompaniments. Our rehearsal accompanist, Peter Kwater, also accompanies many of our concerts at the organ or the piano.
The choir have also given informal carol singing performances in local pubs and at village events. We occasionally sing at private functions, including weddings.
