A Night at the Opera

St Edmund's Church, Southwold
The Pakefield Singers is an amateur choir based in Pakefield near Lowestoft, Suffolk. We are a unique choir with an extensive and varied repertoire and performance history, spanning arrangements and songs from operas, musicals, traditional and popular music, works by contemporary composers, short choral works by composers such as Faure, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Vivaldi, alongside full choral works by the likes of Verdi, Handel and Beethoven.
Since its inception in 2002, the Pakefield Singers has performed extensively across the region, including concerts at Great Yarmouth Minster, Kentwell Hall, Snape Maltings, Lowestoft's Marina Theatre, Pakefield Church, Blythburgh Church, Southwold St Edmund's, and Pontins at Pakefield. In addition, the choir has been on tour in Denmark, and has enjoyed working alongside Aled Jones, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Gala Orchestra, BBC Radio Suffolk and, currently, the highly reputed Kingfisher Sinfonietta.
We hope that, as you browse, you will find out about the Pakefield Singers, our history, past and future performances, our growing repertoire and aspirations, as well as details about how to contact us if you would like further information regarding bookings, membership or sponsorship.
Enjoy your visit and we look forward to seeing you soon at our concerts!
