Fosse Singers are a non-auditioned SATB choir and we welcome members over the age of 18 to join us. We perform a wide range of traditional and contemporary material; folk, pop, spiritual, jazz, songs from musicals and light classical. Fosse Singers were delighted to take part recently in the Big Birthday Celebration at De Montfort Hall, in aid of Rainbows, to celebrate the 50th birthday of BBC Radio Leicester, singing medleys of songs from the 60’s, 70’s as well as more recent songs.
We rehearse on Wednesdays during term time at the Fosse Centre, Mantle Road, Leicester, (off Fosse Road North), from 7.00 to 8.45pm. New members are always welcome. For more information talk to a member of the choir.
We welcome new members over the age of 18 to join us. Contact us to find out more.
- The Choir during COVID-19 – Changes to Autumn Term 2020
In considering the ongoing social distancing rules, advice against singing indoors, and the safety of our choir members, we had to make the difficult decision to continue to rehearse and perform online for at least the remainder of 2020.
Since the beginning of lockdown our rehearsals have continued each week online via Zoom video conferencing, which has been very well received with on average 40+ members joining in each week. Feedback on our online rehearsals has been positive as we can still learn new songs and socialise on a weekly basis. We have even managed to perform and share songs which you can view on our YouTube Channel.
In order to continue in this manner, our new and continuing members will be charged a reduced memberships term fee of £25 for attending the Zoom rehearsals.
Support for accessing Zoom online will be available for anybody that needs it. We also have the potential to live stream the rehearsals when we do return for those people who remain unable to socialise.
We will of course be reacting and reviewing our situation in line with updated Government advice.
- Brussels Tour 2019
In August 2019 we embarked on a tour of Brussels including concerts in the amazing Brussels Cathedral and St Michaels Church in Leuven! Here are some of the highlights of the ‘Fossies’ tour in the words of some of our members:
Singing at the Cathedral will be up there as one of my proudest achievements…..sharing such total fun and laughter with the other choir members.
the tour was an astounding success. Both concerts were amazing….The singing on the steps was equally as amazing.
The tour was brilliant, highlighted by the singing in Brussels Cathedral and equally enjoyable St Michael in Leuven, both enhanced by Emma’s solos of course!
I think a highlight for me was singing in the Cathedral and the lovely programme of music which was put together for us
The standing ovations were great, we were genuinely appreciated!
a resounding success full of excitement, friendship and camaraderie
We hold 3 concerts each year to celebrate the end of each term with a grand performance. We also participate in various events throughout the year and appear on BBC Radio Leicester.
