Richmondshire Choral Society

A very short history

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'. On a few occasions it has even closed down for a short time due to lack 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.

We always welcome new members, and for information that is useful if you are interested in joining us see our 'Joining Our Choir' page.

If you want to know some of the useful faces to look for when you come for the first time, have a look through our 'Who's Who in the Choir' pages too.

These pages can be accessed in the list to the left.

Featured Event

Our next concert on Saturday 7th December. The choir is looking forward to performing under the baton of our new musical director Ben Noble and invite you to join us in a Christmas Concert with a difference. For many people Christmas is as much a time of remembrance as celebration or feasting and we begin with the Faure Requiem which Faure himself described as 'a lullaby of death'. This well known, serene and beautiful work will be followed by Christmas music and carols which sustain the peaceful and contemplative nature of the concert. The wonderful accoustics of St Mary's Church are made for evenings like this.

We look forward to seeing you at St Mary's Church, Richmond.
