Liverpool Festival Choir is made up of Christian singers from all walks of life and denominations. The choir sings ‘Church Music’ past and present, old and new and always for a particular charity, usually about six times a year at ‘Festival Times’ in various churches including both of Liverpool’s two great Cathedrals.
Over the past 14 years or so, the choir has helped to raise over £39,000 for various charities.
The choir was rejuvenated by Colin Porter when he was asked to take over the then ‘Liverpool Praise Choir’, a choir which was then ailing.
It was agreed to combine with the forces of the Mossley Hill Parish Church choir with a change in the repertoire. The choir these days enjoys a fine reputation making return visits to many of the venues it has sung in.
The Choir rehearses at Mossley Hill Parish Church each week with the church choir on Friday evenings and non-church choir members on a Wednesday evening.
New singers are always welcome.
