Kaleidoscope Singers

About us

We are a mixed voice chamber choir based in the beautiful West Sussex town of Steyning and we enjoy an eclectic range of both a cappella and accompanied choral music. 

We were founded in 2002 under the musical direction of our Musical Director Zoe Peate, and sing mainly in Steyning – in St Andrew’s Church and the Steyning Centre, but have also performed at many other venues including Brighton Pavilion, St Mary's House, Hurstpierpoint College Chapel, Petworth House, and at weddings and other events.  The Methodist Church has been our ‘home base’ for some time now and most Thursdays see us practising hard - striving to get it right and doing our best to meet the high standards Zoe expects from us. 

We wish to be an integral part of the lively cultural and creative scene in Steyning and the surrounding area and wherever possible work, and sometimes share the stage with, young people, musicians, artists and other performers, in a variety of contexts and venues.
