‘Originally formed in 1950 under the auspices of the Doncaster Co-operative Society ... The group was initially made up of young female singers and then went under the title The Doncaster Wheatsheaf Girls Choir ... Early in 1993 the decision was made to rename the group The Doncaster Wheatsheaf Singers in order to recognise the increasing age range of its loyal members - many of whom had joined as young girls and remain with them today. However, the group still actively encourages young members to join them.’

‘The world’s only improvising opera company ... With an entirely new show every night, fresh from six brilliantly inventive minds and voices, Impropera can make a musical production about absolutely anything. With a bit of help from the audience in the way of suggested phrases, words or scenarios, Impropera draws you into their world of diverse characters - perhaps a chorus girl who never gets the part, a rapper, a parking attendant, or a pompous barrister; sung with profound emotional commitment and comedic verve.’

The present grand organ comes from the university church in Oxford and is now undergoing major renovation. The church is in constant use by musicians, artists, schools. We play host to a wide range of musical events throughout the year. A SPARK worker ( Spirituality and Arts ) helps to organise events to help us think about God through the creative arts.’

‘The Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, administered by the Philharmonia Orchestra, has given invaluable support to countless young musicians since 1968. Its anonymous founder and benefactor provided enough money to enable exceptionally talented students to bridge the difficult gap between full-time study and professional status ... With the support of its donors and after an extensive review, the Philharmonia Orchestra re-designed the scheme in 2016 to form the Philharmonia MMSF Instrumental Fellowship Programme. This is a more enhanced offer for young musicians, supporting those instrumentalists who are specifically seeking an orchestral career and connecting them to the wider life of the Philharmonia and the expertise within its membership.‘

The Company was founded in 1995 to perform at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival - held Mid August, in recent years in Harrogate, Yorkshire. As well as professional performances, ‘the Festival brings together a wonderful mix of leading amateur performing groups who compete for the coveted Festival Champion’s Trophy’. In additional to its performances at the Festival, the Company tours productions in a number of venues before and after the Festival itself: ‘The Opera Company is completely self-sufficient and does not receive a penny of public funding. I don’t think there are many other opera companies of a similar stature who can say that today!’

‘Founded in 1964 and is still based in the village of Kemsing in Kent.  The choir gives at least four main concerts each year in the Kemsing and Sevenoaks area ...The choir's large repertoire includes major choral classics, but we are not a choral society.  Our programmes are built to a theme and consist of several shorter items in a range of styles.  Many of these pieces are on the lighter side of classical music or are contemporary arrangements of songs and carols with opera and musicals also represented.  Singers and audiences alike enjoy the variety.’
