The Stamford Bridge Singers actually started life as an extension to Stamford Bridge School Choir. It was founded by Michael Wiles, Head of Music at Stamford Bridge School, in order that the School Choir could celebrate its 21st Anniversary in 1990 by singing Vivaldi's Gloria. As the adult section grew, so did the desire of its members to perform more. Consequently it became a choir in its own right called the Stamford Bridge Choir. At this stage the top line was still taken by the senior choristers of the School Choir.
In 2000 the choir became totally independent of the School Choir, introducing sopranos to join the trebles on the top line. The Stamford Bridge Singers, as it was now called, became a member of the National Federation of Music Societies (Making Music) and voted in a committee. In 2014, after 25 years of dedicated service, Michael Wiles stepped down as Musical Director, but was invited to continue his involvement with the choir as Musical Director Emeritus (more information below). We are delighted to welcome Stuart Nettleship as incoming Musical Director. Tuesdays: 7.30 â€“ 9.15pm Rufforth Primary School
