Felpham Community Singers
Tuesday 19.00 – 20.30
Felpham Methodist Church Hall, Felpham Way, PO22, 8QL
£4 / session
I just love coming to choir on Tuesdays and the singing makes us all feel good. We also have a break where we stop for a natter and a cuppa. In our next concert we are singing a mix of classic pop songs and musicals. We always work from word sheets- you don’t have to read music or be a great singer to join us – it’s all about having fun!
Felpham Festive Fun
Felpham Community Singers have been busy preparing the first half of the programme for their Spring concert but took time out to have some festive fun with Hilary’s crazy ‘Sing a Christmas Carol to a different tune’ activity, complete with props this year!
We enjoyed traditional carols sung to melodies such as ‘Y.M.C.A’, ‘Wouldn’t it be Loverley’ and ‘Blue Suede Shoes’.
Felpham Community Singers Summer concert
Halcyon days of summer singing…
Friday 12th July at 7.30 saw FCS entertain us with their performance programme which featured Songs from around the world.
We were treated to ‘Do You Know The Way To San Jose’, ‘Spanish Harlem’, Hari Coo Coo ( a folk song from India which was beautifully sung unaccompanied!) to name but a few, also finding ourselves at times ‘Way Over Yonder in a Minor Key’ and ‘In The Middle of Nowhere’.
For this concert, Felpham Community Singers were joined by our Guitarist Richard Rahaman and for our show stopping Finale, Graham Paul with his Trumpet voluntaries on ‘Sussex By The Sea’
FCS also managed to raise a whopping £552.65 for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, their chosen charity for the proceeds of the raffle. Amazing effort!!!
Thank you to all singers, accompanists and friends and family for making the concert and our fundraising a huge success!

FCS enjoyed a fun filled Social evening in December, the culmination of some great singing in 2018!
