Our History


Beckenham Chorale was founded as the Manor Choir in 1960 by KeninmoreStraker,  London manager of the music publishers Ricordi and Co., who was succeeded in 1964 by Lionel Sawkins. To reflect the choir's local identity its name was changed at the beginning of 1967 to Beckenham Chorale. James Blair was the Conductor from 1977 until 2015. Adam Treadway was appointed Assistant Conductor in 2013 and was Musical Director from 2015 until 2016. Mark Griffiths is our new Musical Director.
