Welcome

The Phoenix Singers, Leek, meet each Monday evening enjoying friendly company.


 

Christmas will soon be with us and we are again performing two concerts in Leek at St Luke’s Church on December 14th where we will be joined by Young Phoenix in a great celebration of Christmas music, new and old.

2019 has already been rewarding with 3 charity concerts organised including joining The British Police Symphony Orchestra again, following last year’s great night at Symphony Hall Birmingham, but this time at The Royal Albert Hall, London

This will be followed by two further concerts locally on July 5th at Longsdon Church in aid of Longsdon Church and The Guy Hilton Asthma Trust and then September 21st at All Saints’ Church, Leek where money will be raised in aid of the UHNM Cancer Centre and Staffordshire Wildlife Trust.
