Our main Annual Concert is held at the end of June and for past three years has marked the start of the week-long ‘St. Nicholas’ Church Music Festival‘.

The Choir sang Eucharist on Saturday and Sunday followed by Choral Evensong on Sunday afternoon in Lichfield Cathedral to the musical settings of Addington and Rawsthorne for the services. The Cathedral’s community made the Choir very welcome and the choir enjoyed singing in the magnificent setting of this ancient place of worship.

A look back on 2015 – ‘What a very busy year. Of course not all members of the choir were able to make every event but between us all we contributed a massive amount to concerts and services, both locally and further afield. In November we entertained shoppers at St Nicholas’ Christmas Fayre and supplemented the church choir singing at the Carols by Candlelight Service in December. March saw two events; a joint concert with Sacred Heart Chamber Choir at Sefton Parish Church and another joint event; ‘Olivet to Calvary’ at St Anne’s Church, Stanley and in April we returned to St Nicholas’ to help out at the Good Friday service. We sang at two events in May – St Faith’s Summer Series of recitals and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral’s ‘Light Night’. In June we provided the music at a wedding in St Joseph’s and in early July another wedding, this time at St Nicholas’. The year drew to a close with our Summer Concert and an RSCM ‘Big sing’ of the Vivaldi ‘Gloria’, a day at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and our weekend in Peterborough’ Mike Foy, Musical Director
