Calling All Singers…. Wendover Choral Society needs YOU!
Wendover Choral Society looks forward to welcoming new singers. The choir is enthusiastic and offers a warm welcome to new members. Covid restrictions have not dimmed the passion of Wendover Choral Society singers who have met and performed since autumn 2021, in near-normal circumstances.
Wendover Choral Society was founded over 50 years ago. We pride ourselves on being a community group open to all ages and abilities. Our rehearsals are informal and relaxed. We have a lot of fun at the rehearsals, in our social events and in staging our excellent concerts. We perform mostly classical music and it is not necessary to audition to join the choir. The choir is directed by Peter Bassano, a most experienced musician and conductor, and also the most patient man in the world! See Peter Bassano on Wikipedia for further information.
Wendover Choral Society is supported by Aylesbury Vale Arts Council and the Lionel Abel Smith Trust. We still have to raise money to promote our concerts and so organise a number of fund-raising and social events throughout the year.
Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7.45 to 9.45 at St Mary’s Church, Church Lane, Wendover, HP22 6NL
We have two concerts per year at Christmas (December) and Summer (May).
If you are interested in joining Wendover Choral Society, please feel free to turn up on a Thursday evening, you would be most welcome. As well as adults (over 18 years), we now welcome 16 and 17 year olds as members.
In order to exist as a choir it is necessary for all our members to pay an annual subscription, which is currently £120 per year and can be paid in two separate instalments of £60.
