The concert will be in Wantage Parish Church and we very much look forward to welcoming you back after a seemingly endless gap of two years.

WELCOME TO WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY
We are a mixed voice choir of around 60 singers drawn from Wantage and the surrounding area.
For over 70 years we have been delighting audiences with our rich tradition of performing not just those works that make up the classical repertoire of most choral societies, but recent compositions as well.
