FCOCA & FCM
The Federation of Cathedral Old Choristers’ Associations (FCOCA) is an umbrella organisation that exists for the benefit of former Choristers and its objective is primarily to promote friendship amongst people from like backgrounds and to assist in maintaining and improving the high standard of cathedral music that plays such a vital part in cathedral worship.
The Friends of Cathedral Music (FCM) aims are to increase public awareness and appreciation of cathedral music, encourage high standards in choral and organ music and raise money for choirs in need.
Although we have different aims and objectives, FCOCA has much in common with FCM, and both organisations want to work together, but retaining our own identities. The Federation would like to highlight the good work that FCM does, advertise their events, and encourage former choristers to join FCM. FCM will reciprocate.
FCM has a number of National and Local Gatherings around the UK and Ireland, and in 2019 a Gathering in the Isle of Man. Further details can be found on their website at https://fcm.org.uk/events/
