Chorister Concert

Every July the choir puts on a light-hearted concert of solos, choral music and duets selected by the singers themselves. This is a great opportunity for the singers to show off their hidden talents, often performing music that we wouldn’t hear on a Sunday morning including musical theatre, pop, and instrumental solos. This year, as with almost everything else, the Chorister Concert has gone online, and some of the choristers and adults have submitted videos recorded in their homes.

The choir has now taken a pause for the summer holidays, but this past term the choristers have been as busy as ever honing their musical skills. Every week 14 music lessons have taken place online, with nine choristers learning the piano, three learning the recorder, and most having had singing lessons with our singing tutor, Rhonda Browne.


Although we haven’t been able to sing together this has been a hugely beneficial time for building musicianship, and the choristers are grateful to the Friends of St Matthew’s Music for their support in enabling learning to continue.

The choir are eager to return to singing together as soon as we are able, but in the meantime we hope you enjoy the Virtual 2020 Chorister Concert below.


The chorister concert is one of our fundraising events where we aim to sell tickets and refreshments to raise funds for choir tours.
