WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY
WELCOME TO WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY
The choir re-started live rehearsals in Autumn 2021 - which have been both well attended and greatly enjoyed. We have been delighted to welcome new members.
Our most recent concert was a performance in
early April, of St Matthew Passion held at St Helen and St Katherine School in Abingdon. We joined forces with Abingdon and District Musical Society(ADMS)and their orchestra. We had outstanding soloists and the two choirs blended really well. The virtually capacity audience were very fulsome with their praise.
We also ran a Come and Sing Messiah in March
in Wantage Parish Church which was very
well attended and enjoyed by all.
This term we will be having
A Night at the Movies featuring music from
The Wizard of Oz, Singing in the Rain, Mamma Mia and La La Land amongst other well-known films
Put the date in your diary: Saturday 16 July in Letcombe Regis Village Hall
