Romulus Singers was established in 2000 by a small group who enjoyed a cappella singing together.
Our varied repertoire ranges from the works of Victoria and Palestrina to the more contemporary styles of Gjeilo, McDowall and Whitacre.
We give three main concerts each season, usually at our rehearsal venue in the beautiful church of Holy Angels. Other locations have included local venues in Ashley, Arley and Chelford, and further afield in the Fylde Peninsula, Kirkby Lonsdale and Cartmel Priory.
Apart from concerts, we have explored other musical events – as ghostly singers as part of the FLARE17 festival at the Contact Theatre, Manchester in 2017; as choral recital winners at the Hazel Grove Music Festival in 2015; and, to mark the end of 18 months of Covid restrictions, we presented Ashley Thompson and Deborah McAndrew's heart-warming seasonal cantata A Christmas Carol, inspired by the Dickens classic, in lieu of our usual Christmas concert.
We have enjoyed overseas choir tours, most recently to the Alpujarras region of Spain and the Chamonix area of France.
We had planned to celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2020 with several events, including a tour to Jersey. The pandemic put paid to these ideas, but rehearsals continued via Zoom. We have since been enjoying the return to singing together in person.
Kate Shipway joined us as Musical Director in 2013. We are also grateful to past conductors Christopher Foy, Imelda Leah and Jon Henderson.
We are a friendly group, occasionally meeting socially for meals and concerts.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in joining us.
