About Us

St. Edmund's Choir is a community choir which was reformed in 1997 by Martin O'Boyle with just four members. Year on year, the choir has grown developing their repertoire and performing in concerts regularly, accompanied by Ann Dickinson MBE - as well as continuing to provide music for the Sunday Liturgy and other Religious occasions for St. Edmund's and St. Thomas's Parish, Waterloo.

Today, the choir boasts a membership of 50, made up of ordinary people: doctors, students, waiters, teachers, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives - and are working hard to produce their next concert.

Please see the contact us page for details on how to join the choir.

Martin O'Boyle
Director of Music

Martin O'Boyle has been performing in plays, pantomimes and musicals since the age of 5. He won the prestigious ‘Voice of The Year’ title at the Liverpool Festival at St George’s Hall, and has appeared with choirs and societies all over the north-west. He is studying under professional baritone David Usher and recently gained a Diploma from the London College of Music. However, Martin's day job centres around football journalism - another one of his passions.
