About Us

The Leconfield Singers is a thriving mixed-voice choir of around 100 members based in the charming market town of Petworth in the heart of the South Downs National Park, West Sussex, in the South of England.  Our repertoire is mainly classical but we have also performed opera choruses and songs from contemporary musicals, in venues ranging from cathedrals to a summer garden.

We are a charity (No. 1152725) dedicated to promoting music, the arts and culture within our local community and as such we are non-profit making.

We have performed concerts to full audiences in our home town of Petworth at the beautiful St. Mary’s Church, as well as Arundel Cathedral, West Sussex. We have taken our repertoire on tour to France, Tuscany in Italy, and last summer we went on tour to Ghent in Belgium during their famous music festival.   We were also delighted to join forces with Dorset House School choir in December 2017 and perform an extra Matinée concert in order to fulfill demand for our Christmas Concerts!

In May 2016 we joined forces with 2 other choirs and performed Verdi’s Requiem to a full audience at the Royal Festival Hall in London, an experience we will be hoping to repeat in May 2019 when we will be performing Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, performing as part of English Philharmonia Chorus.

Our next performance will be as part of the Bignor Park Alive! event – click on the link for more information.  We look forward to seeing you there!
