  • NEW SEASON 2014/15

    We look forward to welcoming all our members, and of course any new members who wish to try us out, with our first rehearsal on Tuesday 9th September.  

    We have an exciting programme this season, kicking off with a Christmas Concert in the beautiful candlelit surroundings of St Matthew's Church in Harwell.  Our programme will include a number of well-known carols, some of which we hope the audience will join in with the singing, as well as some Czech songs and Chilcott's On Christmas Night.

  • Historic day for Didcot

    Only half of the cooling towers in Didcot remain.....

    Hope all our members had fun watching them come down.  Please let us know where you were when they came down. I was standing on one of the Ladygrove mounds getting very cold, having been sat there for over 2 hours!!



    P.s. Not long to go until we depart for Normandy, and just over a month until our autumn term begins. Enjoy your holidays folks.

  • Elijah Concert

    Thank you to everyone who sang in our joint concert of Elijah with Abingdon and District Musical Society on Saturday 7th June at the Yolande Paterson Hall, School of St Helen and St Katharine.

    We have received fantastic feedback from both choral members who enjoyed singing a large-scale work and also from some of our regular concert goers who enjoyed a fantastic concert in a new location.

    To hear one of the movements, please visit our YouTube page.

    Merry Christmas!

  • Successful Quiz Night

    Thanks to everyone who made our Quiz Night a success on Friday night, especially Alison Lane, our Quiz Master Extraordinaire, Jean Elliott for organising the evening and all the people who made soup and warmed it up (Alison Loader, I mean you!)

    And congratulations to the Hagwarts for their win - 2nd time in a row, I think they need to be stopped next year!!

    I'm looking forward to hearing how much money we raised for the choir funds...

  • Invitation from Benson Choral Society to sing Belshazzar's Feast next March

    Benson Choral Society is running a workshop on Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast on Saturday 26 October at St Mary’s Church Wallingford. This is in preparation for a performance in Dorchester Abbey on 29 March 2014.  

    Message from BCS below:

    "Performances of this work are relatively rare because of the resources needed. A large choir is required and the Society would welcome guest singers especially those with some familiarity with the work.

    We had a wonderful time at the Didcot First Clubs and Societies Fair, chatting to potential new members and audience, as well as networking with other clubs in the area. We started to make plans for a joint event, perhaps in 2014.   

    The stall looked wonderful, thanks to Helen's gorgeous posters. A BIG thank you to everyone who helped today.
