The Choir Committee


Janet Hall

This is Janet's second term as Chairman and she has announced that her aim during her term of office is to get all the little jobs she does for the choir, taken over by someone else.






Mary Branigan

Mary Branigan took over the Secretary's role in the summer on 2018. She is the person to whom official requests to the choir should be addressed. She also does a great job with teas during choir breaks but that isn't a secretarial requirement.





Patricia Fairey

Patricia has recently taken over as Treasurer. More information about her very soon.




Mark Harrison

It is Mark's job to source and hire music for choir members and to buy it in when enough members wish to purchase their own copy.

He is also a talented musician and composer and the choir has sung some of his music in its Christmas concerts.




Membership Secretary

Jan Beeton

Jan keeps the membership records and ensures that we have contact details, subs and Gift Aid declarations, where appropriate, from everyone. She also deals with ticket sales in the run up to concerts and is now the holder of the choir inventory.




Publicity Officer

Janet Hall

Janet looks after choir publicity, designing and getting printed posters, fliers, and programmes. She writes press releases and runs the choir's social media on Facebook and Twitter as well as doing much of the website updating.





Bass rep

Michael Gauntlett

As well as ensuring that the Bass section is represented on the committee, Michael is also well known for his passion for both the music of John Rutter and cricket. 

His role in setting out the chairs before most choir members arrive and rehearsals begin is greatly appreciated.



Alto Rep and Safeguarding Officer

Lis Grant is the Alto Rep. having been elected at the 2016 AGM. She has also done a great job of organising a choir social night after the Spring concert for the past few years - and she wasn't even a committee member then! 

As we are now required to have an appointed Safeguarding Officer by our rehearsal venue, Liz has taken on this role as her qualifications and activities elsewhere make her eminently suitable. She is available for you to speak to should you have any concerns about inappropriate behaviour.

She also keeps the stock of choir folders that members should have for their music at concerts.


Tim White - Friends Secretary

Tim White is a member of the tenor section in the choir and was recruited to the committee shortly after joining the choir specifially to set up and manage a new Friends of Richmondshire Choral Society group. When he is not singing, another hobby is aviation and that bottom RH corner of his photo is a Spitfire!
