About Us

Richmondshire Choral Society

Richmondshire Choral Society, has origins going back to 1879 and in its time has sung most of the great choral works. Its name has changed several times to include or not the ’shire’ suffix and be either 'Choral' or 'Musical' and on a few occasions it has closed down for a short time due to shortage of singers during times of war and epidemic but has always bounced back. It is currently enjoying a particularly strong period thanks to a series of charismatic musical directors, even though these have only been with the choir for short periods.
