About Us

The Shoreham Singers are based in the lovely village of Shoreham in Kent.

The Singers perform a wide variety of styles and periods of music, including the SATB choral classics, and popular contemporary music (Karl Jenkins, John Rutter etc), ranging from unaccompanied motets to pieces with instrumental accompaniment.  

The choir was formed in 1987 by Susan Hinks (Susan Haire), Andrew Reid and Danny Kingshill, organist at Shoreham parish church. The first performance  given by the choir was Faure’s Requiem, using a local boy treble to sing the Pie Jesu. Since then, the choir has enjoyed working with many local conductors, and has given a wide variety of concerts accompanied by the Shoreham Sinfonia. Until recently, the choir was an integral part of the Shoreham Festival, which was founded in 1991 by Susan Hinks of The Old Vicarage and Andrew Reid, who was then organ scholar at Cambridge. Since 2003, the choir has joined forces with the Hurst Green Singers for two summer concerts – the first in Hurst Green,  then giving a repeat performance in the Festival concert in Shoreham. If you are interested in joining the choir, we’d love to hear from you.
