Our annual performance programme

The annual programme includes:

  • May – our Annual Concert
  • December – Carol singing in the pub, Nine Lessons and Carols  Service

Other activities may be added such as a visit to Birmingham Symphony Hall to sing in a choral work with other choirs, singing at a wedding in the local church, or being involved in a nearby concert at the organisers’ request.

Details

Our annual concert will have a theme such as ‘Country Fare – A musical menu from the British Isles and around the world’ (2013 concert), or ‘Stage & Screen’ an evening of songs from musicals and films with occasional audience participation (2014 & 2015).  We may sing approximately 15 pieces covering a wide variety of genres e.g. classical, traditional, spiritual, and we also invite guests to join us such as a local professional mezzo-soprano and various instrumentalists.  The concert is held in Chedworth Village Hall or the local church and we support a chosen charity for each event.  It is a social occasion with food and drinks provided in the interval included in the ticket price.

Just before Christmas we have an informal and very enjoyable carol singing event in a local pub followed by a meal for all the Singers and guests.  At the Nine Lessons and Carols Service in Chedworth’s St Andrew’s Church we contribute with a few appropriate pieces.

Any additional events throughout the year are organised according to members’ availability and desire to be involved.
