About us
Stowmarket Chorale 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 is our Director of Music. He also fills this role with The English Arts Chorale and the Eye Bach Choir, and is the Artistic Director of the Reigate Summer Music Festival, which he founded. He has conducted choirs and orchestras in the UK and abroad, including the Royal Philharmonic, the Philharmonia, the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Mozart Players.

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.
