Thanet Festival Choir
The Thanet Festival Choir (TFC) is a mixed choral group of around 100 amateur singers. Based in the Isle of Thanet, East Kent, we regularly perform concerts to bring music to the wider community. Although we do perform the occasional lighter concert, which might be Opera Choruses, Gilbert and Sullivan or Songs from the Shows, we tend to stick to traditional Choral Music (Messiah, Creation and Fauré Requiem amongst many others).
We are an adult choir, but welcome young people over the age of sixteen provided that they are accompanied at rehearsals by a parent/guardian or other appropriate adult. Our membership is drawn from a wide range of musical abilities. Some of us have many years experience of singing in choirs, whereas others are relatively new to the joys and challenges of choral singing. What is important is a desire to learn about singing and music, a commitment to our Wednesday evening rehearsals, a willingness to do some practice at home and, above all, a genuine desire to sing. If you would like to share this joy of singing then why not come and join us?
