About our choir


The Nantwich Singers exist to perform great music whilst engaging wholeheartedly with their audience.  We number between 18 – 20, which is small enough to be agile around the notes and hear each other, yet big enough to create a powerful sound.  Every voice counts.

We perform newly written works as well as revisiting classics and discovering lesser-known gems from the 16th century onwards – particularly those by women composers. Whether the pieces are familiar or new, secular or sacred, we seek to give voice to every dimension of human experience in the way only music can articulate. Each concert has its own flavour of immersive and emotive music. We are fortunate to have an outstanding Musical Director in Ian Crawford, who keeps us on our toes and makes our rehearsals buzz.

Our events usually take place in the medieval treasure of St Mary’s Church, Nantwich, where we also rehearse, or in St Mary’s Church in Astbury, Congleton (“one of the most beautiful churches in the county” R. Richards).  In 2024 we are taking part in the Organ Prom series at the Victoria Hall, Hanley.  We feel privileged to perform in these significant and historic buildings, which add so much beauty and atmosphere to our events.
