Kaleidoscope is a community, female voice choir based in Lichfield, Staffordshire. The aims of the choir are to foster the love of singing, take singing into the community and raise money for charitable causes.
The name reflects the ethos of the choir as we include a wide variety of musical styles in our repertoire and encourage singers to join us from all backgrounds, of varying ages and with varied experience.
The choir is currently accepting new members into all sections, so please get in touch if you feel you would like to try singing with a choir. You can do this by emailing email@example.com.
If you are interested in joining us, please read this page to find out more.
The choir is currently led by Rupert Feld and members sing in 2, 3 or 4 parts.
Music includes modern arrangements of choral standards, music from shows, classics and popular music arranged for female voices. The choir is always interested to hear from anyone who would like to join us, even if they haven’t sung for a number of years. We have members of all ages and some had not sung since school when they joined us.
The choir rehearses weekly in Lichfield and performs a number of concerts throughout the year. Our concerts give us the opportunity to express our love of singing and entertain our audiences, at the same time often enabling us to raise funds for local organisations or charities and cover the choir’s running costs, although most of our expenses are covered by member subscriptions.
This year the choir has adopted ‘Kids Like Us’ as it’s charity for 2023 and is planning a fund-raising concert in the summer.
Please look at the ‘Concert Schedule’ page to find out about future performances.
The choir is always interested in hearing from organisations who are interested in a performance, either for fund-raising or entertainment. You can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Singers from Kaleidoscope Choir, led by Rupert Feld (above, far left) visited Lichfield Memory Café recently to sing for members and celebrate the choir raising over £1000 for the Memory Café during 2022.
The choir adopted the Memory Café as its 2022 charity and funds were raised both at concerts and during rehearsals. These funds have enabled Memory Café members to enjoy extra activities such as a visit to the panto, dancing etc. They are now planning a special coronation party
The choir raised a fantastic £607 for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetic Research Fund) at a concert in September 2022. Above, representatives of the charity are seen accepting a cheque from the choir’s M.D. Rupert Feld.
The choir adopted Myeloma UK as their charity for support during 2019.
During the year the choir raised a fantastic £1567 for the charity. This was raised at three concerts the choir organised throughout the year.
A cheque for this amount was presented to John Dixon at their ‘Friends and Family’ evening, who accepted it on behalf of the charity.
Sadly, Chris who is presenting the cheque in this picture, has since passed away. We have decided to keep this picture on the website in her memory.
Myeloma is a cancer of the bone marrow and unfortunately, is incurable (terminal).
‘Myeloma UK’ is a charity which supports myeloma patients and their carers by promoting research, raising awareness and maintaining a network of support groups. John and his wife, Chris are members of the local support group which is based in Burton.
