    Story

    FAT LADY OPERA COMMUNITY CHORUS

    Hearing human voices singing live opera for the first time is a uniquely spellbinding experience. The effortless sound production, the immediate soul to soul connection and the grip of narrative all contribute to a compelling vital engagement.

    The work of Fat Lady Opera Community Chorus will enable people from all backgrounds discover some of the amazing music and stories from the world of opera.

    Fat Lady Opera is a new Community Interest company and we want to start developing the infrastructure for opera in Kent by creating a new Opera Community Chorus - able to perform works by familiar and contemporary composers.

    Participating in music-making is effective for pain relief - University of Oxford research centre

    In it's first year the FLOCC chorus will meet monthly to learn several opera choruses that have been newly arranged specifically for their voices. There will be no auditions for FLOCC and will be open to anyone aged 16 to 96. Our work will give singers exceptional training from professional singers, composers and musicians.

    The donations we raise will enable us to ensure that membership fees are not a barrier to participation.

    The chorus will deliver a free scratch performance in various locations across Kent each month.
