ABOUT Colchester Choral Society


We are a well-established, friendly choir based in Britain's oldest recorded town - and now one of the country's newest cities. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings in the centre of Colchester.

Our repertoire ranges from the baroque to the twentieth century, from large scale choral works with full orchestra, to more intimate chamber and a capella performances.


join us!


We welcome enquiries from potential new members.  While an acceptable singing voice is essential, enthusiasm and committment are just as important.

Please contact the Secretary who will be pleased to give you further details and arrange for you to attend a rehearsal and an informal audition.
