Winchester City Festival Choir

WCFC is a choir of approximately 70 singers and is under the direction of Graham Kidd.

Our Main Concerts

In January of each year the WCFC presents a concert with professional soloists and orchestra. Each May, the WCFC joins with other Hampshire-based choirs in the Winchester & County Music Festival to perform major choral works at either Romsey Abbey or Winchester Cathedral. See concerts for details of future performances.

Rehearsals

From September to May, we rehearse on Wednesday evenings, usually at Littleton Memorial Hall. After May we also have a short programme we call the “Summer Sing” when we learn shorter pieces, often modern music of a lighter nature which is performed at the AGM.

Other Performances

In addition to the main concerts, WCFC performs at various local events each year as opportunities arise. We normally perform a Christmas Concert each year and sing Carols to support the community. The choir has also enjoyed trips to perform in Winchester’s twin cities of Laon, France, and Giessen, Germany. In 2013 most of the choir visited Cologne, Germany, to sing at a Christmas Market. Members of the choir also sing at weddings, small concerts and competitions.  The WCFC normally uses the name ’Winchester Singers’ on these occasions. Occasionally we support other choirs with singers such as singing the Verdi Requiem in December.
