Shoreham Singerswas formed in 1987 by Susan Hinks (Susan Haire), Andrew Reid (now Director of the Royal School of Church Music) 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. The Festival came to an end in 2012.
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. Michael Barlow conducts both choirs.
