Thanet Festival Choir
The Thanet Festival Choir (TFC) is a mixed choral group of around 100 amateur singers. Based in the Isle of Thanet, Kent, we regularly perform concerts to bring music to the wider community. Please scroll through a few of the tabs and read about the sort of choir we are, and read some reviews under “previous concerts”; we tend to stick to traditional Choral Music (Messiah, Creation and Fauré Requiem amongst many others). We do perform the occasional lighter concert, which might be Opera Choruses, or Gilbert and Sullivan or Madrigals, but we haven’t yet attempted any tribute concerts to the Beatles or Abba, so if these are what you like to sing, then here might not be the best place to find what you want!
We are an adult choir, but welcome young people over the age of sixteen provided that they are accompanied at rehearsals by a parent/guardian or other appropriate adult. Our membership is drawn from a wide range of musical abilities. Some of us have many years experience of singing in choirs, whereas others are relatively new to the joys and challenges of choral singing. What is important is a desire to learn about singing and music (i.e an inquisitive mind), a commitment to our Wednesday evening rehearsals, a willingness to do some practice at home and, above all, a genuine desire to sing. If you would like to share this joy of singing then why not come and join us?
