King’s Lynn Festival Chorus

ALISON CROOSE St Nicholas' Chapel, King's Lynn


St Nicholas' Chapel, King's Lynn

Beautiful brass sounds added a new and exciting dimension to the choir's spring concert which reflected the singers' growing expertise.

Chorus director Michael Kibblewhite has been moved by the chapel's vast space and fine acoustic to develop more ambitious programmes that present new challenges to the 130 voices yet add to the audience's pleasure.

The singers responded positively, clearly relishing the opportunity to progress under Mr Kibblewhite's expert leadership and tuition.

The eight-piece Trillium Brass Ensemble's excellent musicianship complemented the voices and Mr Kibble-white utilised the chapel's space to underline the quality of the sound from each.
