We are a friendly, enthusiastic and thriving choir of over 100 singers, based in Wallingford in South Oxfordshire. Although we are a non-auditioned choir, we set ourselves high musical standards and are ambitious to improve to the full extent of our potential.
We are delighted that Jonathon Cole-Swinard, Head of Music and Chorus Director at Garsington Opera will be joining us for the Spring Term to rehearse and perform a very exciting mixture of new and familiar works (see right).
While the standard classics of the choral repertoire remain at our core, with recent performances of the great works by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Verdi and Elgar, we always enjoy the challenges of less well-known music. Concerts in recent years have highlighted both the new - Sunrise Mass by Ola Gjeilo, Mirror of Perfection by Richard Blackford - and the unusual - Rio Grande by Constant Lambert, Misa Criola by Ramirez and Dona Nobis Pacem by Vaughan Williams.
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 - 9.30 pm in St Mary's Church, Market Place, Wallingford, OX10 0EG, with a refreshment break at half time.
New members will always be welcome and can come and try us without obligation - you won't regret it!
|Our Winter concert was in honour of Stephanie Martin, our much-loved Tickets and Front of House secretary who did so much to support the society until her tragically early death in March this year. At her wish we performed Bach's Mass in B Minor, accompanied by the celebrated period-instrument orchestra – Instruments of Time and Truth|
