About us
Stowmarket Chorale, formed in 1901, is an ambitious choir which rehearses in Stowmarket on Wednesday evenings between September and July; we usually give three concerts a year.

Director of Music
Leslie Olive was our Director of Music for 17 years, combining the role with The English Arts Chorale and the Eye Bach Choir, and being the Artistic Director of the Reigate Summer Music Festival. His final concert with us was March 2018. We are delighted that Christopher Moore will be our interim Director, with an exciting chapter to start in the autumn with Tom Appleton.

William Baldry joined us as accompanist in 2014 with experience as Assistant Director of Music at St Mary-le-Tower, Ipswich. He has been organ scholar of Royal Holloway College, University of London, and has spent two years as Organ Scholar of Tewkesbury Abbey.

He is an organist and pianist, and we are delighted to work with him..

We are delighted to have Terry Waite as our President: he has attended a number of our concerts and we look forward to a long and warm relationship with him, together with our two supportive Vice Presidents, Graham Bishop-Hunt and Dorothy Fisher.



President: Terry Waite CBE. Vice Presidents: Graham Bishop-Hunt, Dorothy Fisher
