A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
As chairman of the Nantwich Choral Society I would like to welcome you to our website. I loved to sing as a child and music has always been a big part of my life although I have never studied it formally. My first experience of choral singing was at school. Since then I have lived in different parts of the country and sung with a variety of groups including choral societies, chamber groups, an opera group, and a ladies-only choir. I joined the Nantwich Choral Society four years ago. I was immediately impressed by the high standards as well as its welcoming atmosphere and I am very proud to have been elected as the Chairman. From its beginnings as a Local Authority evening class some forty years ago, NCS has become one of the best choral societies in the north-west and we are lucky to have the services of two excellent and inspiring musicians in John Naylor, our Music Director, and Simon Russell, our accompanist. Choral singing is a distinguished English tradition with a long history, which has inspired many composers to write wonderful music for us to perform. It’s good to feel that we are honouring this tradition and carrying it forward into the future.
