Who We Are

St Albans Choral Society is one of the leading large amateur choirs in our area, singing to a high standard. We attract and are open to singers with a range of musical abilities.

We give four concerts a year in venues around St Albans, including the Abbey, which provides the opportunity to perform with superb professional soloists and orchestras.

Our concerts cover a range of music from the 18th century through to the present day, including new works by contemporary composers. This enables the choir to learn and grow and gives our audiences a great and varied experience.

Details of our forthcoming concerts can be found on our concerts page or in our Concert Diary.  Click here for the Concert Season for 2014-15
