  • 60th anniversary

    2018 is the 60th anniversary of Didcot Choral Society.  Within the last 60, the choir, like our town of Didcot has seen much growth.  We have grown not just in the size of our membership but also in our ability and quality.

    Already this year we have performed works that we would not have considered previously,  March saw our impressive performance of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, Brahms' Liebeslieder  Neue Liebeslieder and Dyson's The Blacksmiths.

  • Summer tour in Scotland

    Thank you to all the members who joined us for yet again another successful tour.

    The highlight we are sure for many will be performing on the Mercat Stage at the Edinburgh Fringe.  We were delighted to have an audience of some who already knew of us as well as many passers by who hadn't.  We also all thoroughly enjoiyed our concert at the very welcoming Church of Holy Rude in Stirling (as well as learning about all the history which has taken place there) and the experience of singing from the organ loft at Glasgow Cathedral for their Sunday morning Service.
