The Fishponders are much in demand in the East Midlands but have also performed in other parts of the country and on a number of occasions in France. They were also invited to sing at the Royal Albert Hall at the Ukaasie Festival to commemorate ten years of Nelson Mandela’s presidency.

The choir, which is about fifty strong, sings a wide selection of material which includes folk music from around the world, light classical pieces and items specially written or arranged by Dana and Anne. However, its first love is African music - mostly from the south of the continent. Choir members work very hard with Dana and Anne to produce as authentic a sound as possible. 

Over the years the Fishpond Choir has developed into a very accomplished unit thanks to the patience and professionalism of its leaders.  What comes over most from its performances, along with the quality of the voices, is the sheer joy in making music. With its happy informal style the choir so obviously enjoys performing and its enthusiasm endears it to every audience for whom it performs.
