Welcome to Grantham Choral Society's website. We are an enthusiastic group of singers numbering 70+ voices drawn from around the Grantham area.
We sing a wide range of choral music and welcome new (or returning) singers.
Although unauditioned, we aim to achieve a high standard of singing under our Musical Director and conductor David Humphreys and give regular performances within the splendid settings of Grantham's St Wulfram's Church and ChristChurch, Finkin Street.
One of our Vice Presidents, Edna Chapman, died peacefully on Thursday 10th December aged 87 years. Edna, along with the late Evelyn Dawes was one of the Society’s original accompanists. She and Evelyn shared piano duties, playing on alternate weeks and augmenting the ladies of the choir on the other week.
Edna continued to play for the Society until 1985 when her position on Lincolnshire County Council demanded more of her time. In the 1990’s she came back to the Society as a soprano and in her later years as a member, giving the altos her support.
Edna became one of our Vice Presidents in 1987 and remained very supportive of the Society, attending many concerts with her husband, Roy. In later years, Edna was often to be seen sitting in church, on a final rehearsal day, before an evening performance. She enjoyed regular visits from several of her musical friends when she moved to Harrowby Lodge Nursing Home. Our thoughts are with her two daughters, Jane and Clare, and their families.
