UMCM Singers

The UMCM Singers provides opportunities for UMCM’s singing pupils to sing in a four part classical choir with keyboard accompaniment. Most recently they performed extracts from Purcell’s Come Ye Sons of Art. The choir is conducted and directed by Andy and accompanied by Lizzie.

Forte Gospel Choir

Great friends of UMCM, Forte Gospel Choir have performed at many of our events. Under the skilled loving direction of Sam Kingsbury this is one happy choir! Sam creates some fabulous arrangements for her choir and is a talented singer herself.
