WELCOME TO SUMMERTOWN CHORAL SOCIETY

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

LATEST NEWS:
We have been Zooming rehearsals from a music studio in North Hinksey Village, involving our Musical Director and Accompanist. But we are now back in our regular venue, where we are adding four singers to the sound members hear at home, for the last weeks of this term. Last term we rehearsed Brahms’ Requiem and various ‘Brahms-friendly’ pieces – by Bach, Clara Schumann, Rheinberger and Reger.  For our summer term we have lightened the tone. The music has been chosen by our members. For a list, see our Next Rehearsal page. The subscription is £30 for the term (4 February – 20 June). For details, see the 15 January email on our Weekly Notices page. The first evening is free to anyone who wants to give us a trial. Just let our Membership Secretary have your email and we will send you the Zoom link.

Next term we are planning to be singing together again and will be rehearsing Handel’s Messiah from Thursday 9 September, with a performance early in 2022.  We are delighted to be joined again by Instruments of Time and Truth.

In normal circumstances our live rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings, 8-9.30pm, at St Michael’s Church, Lonsdale Road, North Oxford. The current online rehearsals are just one hour, from 8.20-9.20pm. We welcome all voice parts and abilities – to the online rehearsals too. 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. We have just posted, at the same link, details of a ‘staycation’ in Oxford, between 10 and 15 August, in lieu of the usual trip abroad.

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