Registered Charity No. 1145755
Towcester Choral Society is a mixed voice choir with a membership of around sixty enthusiastic singers and has been performing a wide variety of music in Towcester and South Northamptonshire since 1900. In addition, TCS regularly joins singers from other choirs to perform in such prestigious venues as the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall and in venues overseas. Here, we get the chance to sing with a professional orchestra and conductor and to tackle works which are beyond the scope of a small community choir. Singing Handel’s ‘Messiah’ from scratch in the Royal Albert Hall is a regular fixture in our calendar.
We welcome singers of all levels of experience from those who have only sung in the shower to experienced voices. It is not necessary to read music, and those members who joined us with no technical knowledge have picked it up over time and blossomed as accomplished singers. Our Musical Director, Helen Swift, who takes us from strength to strength believes everyone can sing given the opportunity and the right guidance. We have recently had an influx of lady members and are now seeking more men to join the ranks and keep our lovely harmonies in balance. So gentlemen, your local choir needs you, even if you were told at school that you couldn't sing. Come along and see how happy a jolly good sing can make you feel, and chase away those everyday cares. We don't sing because we're happy; we are happy because we sing!
We rehearse in Towcester on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and our season runs from early September until July. We have three main concerts a year: Spring (around Easter time); Summer (late June) and Christmas (mid December). We are currently on summer break, our next season practice is Tuesday, 1st September 2015.
If you would like to join us to sing please contact our Secretary, Ann Ward. If walking in on your own for the first visit is a little daunting we can arrange for a member to meet you and arrive together, or even better you can bring a friend.
