Kingswood Singers - The choir was formed about 40 years ago and the last 20 have been under the direction of Mrs Doreen Bridson.  

They are a four part harmony choir who sing for the joy of music and their main aim is to entertain and give pleasure from a varied repertoire

Jo Housley started singing in church choirs at the age of 9.  A choral scholarship enabled her to join a county girls' choir and take singing lessons.  As a young adult, Jo was invited to join the Erleigh Cantors, a small chamber choir which toured cathedrals during academic holidays. 

 

Jonathan Caren plays the keyboard or organ during Sunday worship, and is also a member of the Guitar Group.  Currently studying for Grade 8 ABRSM.  He also attends the Liverpool Welsh Choral Union

  

16 year old Gwen Parry plays Celtic harp and has performed in varied venues from the Palm House to the Cathedral in the summer enjoying solo performances in "Walking through Windows".
