How to join
The Chorale and children from Rougham, Great Finborough and South Lee
Schools singing Zimbe! during our March 2018 concert.
It was great to be joined by so many enthusiastic young singers.
Hopefully a few (or perhaps their parents) will join the Chorale in years to
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.
