New Musical Director Wanted!

 

 We are looking for a new Musical Director, to start September 2022 (or soon after), who will inspire us to improve our techniques and widen our range of musical ability, whilst enjoying our singing experience.

 

The ‘Uckfield Singers’ is a community 4-part choir, open to anyone who wants to sing. Our repertoire is wide-ranging from choral pieces to musicals, folk and pop songs. Whilst having fun singing, our concerts raise money for local charities.

 

We meet for rehearsal on Monday evenings (term time only) from 19:15 to 21:30 at the Belmont Centre in Uckfield.

 

To register interest and for more information, please use the ‘Contact Us’ page on this website.

 

 

 

Uckfield Singers concert a great success.


 

Uckfield’s longest standing community choir, The Uckfield Singers, celebrated its 15th anniversary on Saturday 25th of June 2022 at the Civic Centre, with a performance given to an enthusiastic audience of around 100.

The programme was wide and varied, including songs in 4-and 5-part harmony under the direction of Goldi Novkovic, accompanied on keyboard by the brilliant Kim Retallick. Choral versions of modern popular songs such as Coldplay’s Viva la Vida and Gary Barlow’s Sing were mixed with songs from the musicals, modern classics Like Rutter’s Look at the World, and even an opera chorus. The whole thing was topped off with a magnificent 15-minute rendition of a medley from Les Miserables.

Guest soloist Chris Ellison flew in all the way from Spain and gave powerful and moving renditions of Send in the Clowns by Sondheim and Somewhere by Sondheim and Bernstein, and a highlight for many was the brilliant guest solo by 10-year-old Beatrice Mackmin in Goodall’s The Lord is my Shepherd, better known as Psalm 23 or the theme tune to The Vicar of Dibley.

A successful raffle was held which raised £264 for the Uckfield Foodbank. The programme was kindly sponsored by Funeral Directors Fuller and Scott, Cooper and Son and C.P.J. Field.

The Uckfield Singers are actively recruiting currently for new members especially male singers. No previous experience is required and all are welcome. No auditions are necessary.

The new term starts on September 12. For more information and to contact us please go to our "Info for New Members" page
