The Hills Singers have been together for 24 years. The choir has a membership of 25 voices and is based in Malvern. They enjoy performing a varied repertoire which spans a period from the 16th century to present day and often sing unaccompanied.
Their programme for 13 May comprises a broad range of music, including Monteverdi’s Mass for Four Voices (1650), Tippett’s Five Negro Spirituals and Chilcott’s I Share Creation. The second half of the programme features shorter pieces: madrigals, folksongs and spirituals, with works by Vaughan Williams, Judith Weir, Rathbone and many more.
The Hills Singers recently enjoyed a workshop with Simon Berridge (THE SIXTEEN) who said
‘You are a most responsive choir… I have a very busy May, but, when are you performing [Monteverdi Mass for Four Voices (1650) and Tippett Five Negro Spirituals]… if I can make it, I’ll definitely come.’
This will be an evening of serene and uplifting pieces to celebrate the coming of summer; the programme is sure to delight and pour sunshine on the soul.

She now teaches locally and works as an examiner, advisory teacher and vocal animateur.
