Wednesday evening on the 2nd November 2016 was quite a sad day for ICS, it was the last time that Martyn would be our accompanist, although he will stand in as and when required.Martyn has served as accompanist to IngatestoneChoral Society since 1986, having conducted the choir for five years before that. He also accompaniedBillericay Choral Society for many years and was official accompanist for the Essex Musical Association until it disbanded in 2009.

We have been lucky enough to find a new talented accompanist in Peter Webb who apart from being an accomplished pianist also plays the organ to a high standard and composes music, we sang one of his compositions in our November Remembrance Day Concert and the tune has now had Christmas words added by Liz Alderton our Choir secretary, a very talented duo.
Peter joined Ingatestone Choral Society as a singer in our Bass section but it soon became apparent that he was a very good pianist, too good an opportunity to miss! We all look forward to working with him.
