2016 was our 50th anniversary year.  Our first ever concert was a performance of Haydn's Creation and, under Andrew Storey’s direction we repeated this much-loved oratorio to great acclaim in the Spring of 2016. In October 2016 we celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with madrigals, songs and extracts from Kiss me Kate and West Side Story

Faversham Choral Society is an open-access choir of mixed voices of all ages, often described by new members as “the friendliest choir in this part of Kent”. It meets weekly for rehearsal, on Wednesday evenings from 7.45pm until 9.45pm in the United Church hall in Preston Street, Faversham.  The society was established in 1966 by the late Fred Ash and was an amalgamation of several small singing groups in the area.

The aim has always been to provide a friendly atmosphere for people who enjoy singing to get together and perform a wide variety of works from oratorio through operetta to madrigals, part songs and carols. The society celebrated its 40th anniversary with a highly acclaimed performance of Handel’s Messiah, and the first Faversham Proms Concert. Since then it has performed Mozart’s Requiem and, under Ben Saul, more modern pieces by John Rutter, Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, Handel’s Coronation anthems and Carl Jenkins' The Armed Man. Dom del Nevo led us in two concerts in 2014: Opera
Choruses in the Spring and  English Composers in the Autumn including Britten, Parry and Bird Songs by Richard Sisson. Our Christmas concert, under Andrew Storey's direction, featured Britten's Ceremony of Carols and hissecond produced acclaimed performances of Vivaldi's Magnificat and Haydn'sMissa Brevis.  Our very well received Autumn concert included the popular Faure Requiem but also the less well known and quite challenging Cherubini Requiem.
