The Sackville Singers began as a group of friends who gathered in 1979 to sing madrigals for fun and to raise money for charities.
In the years since, the choir has doubled in size, though still a chamber choir, and the repertoire has broadened to include major works and eccentric ones. We have welcomed a regular accompanist to the group and invited orchestras of varying compositions, from string quartets to jazz ensembles, to join us. We have sung in most of the churches in Sevenoaks, and in Brasted, at the Tudeley Festival, Canterbury Cathedral, in Knole’s Great Hall and Stone Court. And, once, notably in a barn in the rain.
We are enjoying rehearsing and singing together as a smaller choir under the direction of two of the Singers, and would be delighted to welcome new members in all parts.
Although the Singers are not performing at the present, we hope to resume concerts soon.
