'Amity' is a choir of approximately 18 voices and we sing abroad spectrum of mainly unaccompanied music-from the Renaissance to the present day - and encompassing most styles including jazz and light music.
The choir was founded by John Farnon in 1973; his wife Elizabeth took over the direction on her retirement from the music department at Beaulieu Convent School. We try to put on a concert 2-3 times a year and occasionally enter the Jersey Eisteddfod. In 2017 the choir was awarded the cup in the Eisteddfod's Sacred Class.
We also enjoy visiting France and singing in some of the country's lovely churches.
The choir is fortunate in its members as many are well-known talented local musicians, and we enjoy arrangements by Elizabeth's husband John and compositions by Duncan Miller.
