Pakefield Singers – Committed to the Community

Being part of our community and sharing music with local musicians and audiences is central to our philosophy. The choir welcomes singers from the local community to join us on a permanent basis or for one off events which bring together local people to experience live performances of major works such as Verdi Requiem and Carmina Burana.

We try to support local events promoted by community groups and local radio whenever we can and as well as responding to various fundraiser requests.

We believe that Pakefield Singers also makes a positive contribution to the community by promoting well-being and mental health, combating social isolation and providing our audiences with opportunities to listen to live music.
