How to join
In April 2014 the choir
gave the first Suffolk performance of The Peacemakers by Karl Jenkins in The
Apex, Bury St Edmunds. Our special guest on that evening was Terry Waite
CBE, a long-time friend of the composer and contributor to the work. We are
delighted that he is now our President.
Our Vice-Presidents are Dorothy Fisher, a previous choir member and most
energetic and long-serving volunteer, and Graham Bishop-Hunt, our Musical
Director in the 1990s and early 2000s.
