Welcome to the

THORNBURY CHORAL SOCIETY

Website


We are a non-auditioned choir bringing quality concerts to our community.

Rehearsals are normally on Monday nights at 8pm at Thornbury URC.

However, because of the coronavirus outbreak, we have been rehearsing on Zoom.

Rehearsals will resume on Zoom from Monday 11 January from 8-9.30pm.  

More details are available here and by email to members.

We are rehearsing:

Requiem (Fauré)

Cantique de Jean Racine (Fauré)

“The Armed Man” parts 1, 3, 5, 6, 12, 13 (Karl Jenkins)

Harmonie Messe (Haydn)

We hope to be able to return to normal later in the Spring or Summer with live rehearsals and live concerts.

We sang the Messiah on 28 November 2020 in our own homes along with Steven Kings and Andrew Davis’s performance on Spotify.  Here is a screen grab taken afterwards.
