Janet Kelsey, of Fakenham Choral Society (FCS), will be leaving the choir after overseeing a total of 11 seasons.

Under her leadership, the choir has grown in both membership and reputation and it is now looking to recruit a new director to build upon these successes.

The mixed-voice choir is made-up of 100 singers from north and west Norfolk and performs three concerts a year of both sacred and secular music, all with professional soloists and often a full orchestra. In addition to the concerts, FCS also runs an annual Come and Sing day, attracting hundreds of singers from Norfolk and beyond.

For more information about the role, contact FCS secretary Tracey Thompson by emailing fakenhamchoralsec@gmail.com.
