The choir is an un-auditioned SATB choir of around 60 singers ranging in age and ability but all enjoying the pleasure of singing. The choir performs 2 concerts each year. Our repertoire is diverse; in the past few years we have performed works by Mendelssohn, Brahms, Handel, Rutter, Vivaldi, Gilbert & Sullivan as we as carols and hymns.

The choir rehearses on a Thursday evening at St. Paul's Primary School, Spalding.
