WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY

WELCOME TO

 
WELCOME TO WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY

We are a thriving mixed voice choir with around 50 members performing three concerts per year. We have a long tradition of combining the classics with contemporary music and selections from operas, stage shows and films

Last year, we were delighted to announce the appointment of Hannah Towndrow as our new
Music Director. Hannah joined us in September and conducted our 2023 Christmas concert when we performed Handel: Zadok the Priest and Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne and Mozart: Coronation Mass in C Major. 
 
In March we performed the Fauré and Duruflé Requiems, with orchestra and soloists (Sofia Kirwan-Baez and Jack Redman, below). The concert was a sell-out and very well received. 



















Our next concert - 'Feel the Spirit' -  will be on Saturday 6 July 2024 at 7.30pm in Letcombe Regis Village Hall when we will be performing music by Bob Chilcott, John Rutter, George Shearing and George Gershwin.
