The ladies of the Swift Singers enjoy sharing their love of singing and have given concerts in Derbyshire, Coventry, Ireland, Wales, Cologne, Jersey, Germany and France.  The choir also love a challenge and take part in competitions across the country. Successes have included 2nd place in the UK choir of the Year Class at the Bournemouth Competitive Music Festival and winning the Ladies category of the Isle of Man Festival of Choirs in 2010.

In October 2013, we performed in the newly refurbished Dame Elizabeth Hall at the William de Ferrers School and were honoured to be the first performers to use the new grand piano. We were joined  by the ladies of the Orpheus singers and entertained our audience with joint pieces and individual performances by both choirs.

Our most recent concert took place on the 29th March 2014 at the United Reformed Church, Maldon with another brand new grand piano! We performed some wonderful pieces including a My Fair Lady Medley and the cups song. You can see some of the performance on You Tube; searching for “Swift Singers” will find us.

The choir is already looking forward to July when we will be giving our 25th Anniversary Concert at the William de Ferrers Centre and to Chrismas 2014 when we will be performing “Nativity” composed by our Musical Director, Clive Smith. Look out for details closer to the time!

The Choir has made  several recordings including pieces from the 16th century to the popular styles of the present day. The CD “Reflections” features Memory, Evergreen, Send in the Clowns, Fields of Gold and many more. Our Christmas CD is also available featuring many beautiful Christmas songs. To buy a CD, please email us or speak to any choir member. Visit our Music page to listen to some clips.
