A well-established, mixed-voice choir based in North Oxford


After our successful concert of French Romantic Choral Music on 21 May, followed by a party on 28 May to celebrate Duncan Saunderson’s 25 years as our Music Director, we now have a summer break. Our rehearsals will start up again on Thursday 8 September 2022, when we will be rehearsing Haydn’s Nelson Mass and Handel’s Coronation Anthems, for a concert on Saturday, 21 January 2023 with Instruments of Time and Truth.

And for details of our summer 2023 programme – of Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Clara Schumann and Lizst – go to our Weekly Notices page.

Our rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings, 8-9.30pm, at St Michael’s Church, Lonsdale Road, North Oxford. We welcome all voice parts and abilities and there is no audition. For more details about the choir, see our Join Us and The Choir pages.

If you are interested in a cappella singing, have a look at the activities of the long-established and well-travelled Summertown Singers, including a recent ‘staycation’ in Oxford. This year (16-21 August 2022) Porto is our destination.

For details of past performances, including a number of commissions, see our Concert History and Archives pages.
