Founder

Our founder-conductor Kelvin Thomas MBE sadly passed away in June 2019 at the age of 99. The choir benefited hugely from his passion and dedication to music while he was conductor. Kelvin is remembered fondly by the choir who were delighted to have been able to sing with him in recent years in Christmas concerts at Bridgemead.
