FALMOUTH VOCALZ was formed in September 2012 by founder conductor Neil Shepherd. Neil formed the choir to fulfill a growing demand for younger, faster paced choirs singing a varied repertoire of music. In 2010, Neil founded " Local Vocalz" a choir based in Hayle but covering the West Cornwall area and now a flourishing choir with almost 70 members. Due to the success of Neil's "Falmouth Community Choir", he decided to try and form a younger mixed voice choir to rehearse in the evenings, but to enjoy a wide range of activity, both musically and socially. Falmouth Vocalz was born! Falmouth Vocalz and Local Vocalz join together regularly as "The Vocalz Chorus".
Falmouth Vocalz is run by experienced choral singer, organist and conductor, Neil Shepherd who conducts a number of choirs in Cornwall and beyond. Neil is a freelance musician and music teacher and he is also Director of Music at St Ives Parish Church. Neil is assisted by the choir accompanist, Richard Bailey, himself a professional musician in his own right.
The choir enjoys a wide range of events including regular social events, meals out, parties, an annual four day trip to France and other events.
