Singing Day 2020
I greatly look forward to taking on the position of Musical Director of Whitstable Choral Society in January 2020. I will bring a wide range of musical expertise, and hope to share this with members of the choir and audience alike, creating an engaging and exciting artistic experience for all.
I began my musical career at Worcester Cathedral, where I was a chorister and, during my sixth-form years, a lay clerk. As well as singing at daily services and taking part in numerous broadcasts, recordings, and tours, I participated in the celebrated Three Choirs Festival. Singing much of the great choral repertoire with internationally-acclaimed conductors, soloists and orchestras was a formative experience for me.

Parking in Middle Wall car park (5 minutes’ walk from St Alphege Church). The audience will be invited to sing traditional carols with the choir. Children in the audience will be invited to perform “Away in a Manger” under David Flood’s personal direction. Afterwards, every child will receive a small reward for their glorious contribution. This concert is a wonderful mixture of choral and well known seasonal music for the whole family – a Whitstable calendar highlight.
About Whitstable Choral Society

Our wide variety of choral music has in recent years included Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana”, Dvorak’s “Stabat Mater”, and Requiems by Brahms and Mozart. The Society’s musical director is David Flood, who is Organist and Master of Choristers at Canterbury Cathedral.
