Kington Choral Society

This is Kington Choral Society

About us
  • We are based in the small market town of Kington, Herefordshire in the Welsh Borders.
  • We are a group of around 60 people with widely differing musical skills and experience who enjoy choral singing.
  • We sing a variety of choral works and give several public performances each year.
  • We rehearse most Monday evenings in Kingswood Hall with extra rehearsals before concerts.
  • Our concerts take place in St Mary’s Church, Kington, or St Andrew’s Church, Presteigne.
  • Members are not auditioned, but continuing membership depends upon commitment, co-operation and enthusiasm.
  • Our Music Director is Robert Evans, whose first concert with us was the wonderful Christmas Oratorio in November 2016. Robert is an established soloist and consort singer performing with The Sixteen, The Cardinalls Musick, Alamire, Tenebrae, The Kings Consort, and The Gabrieli Consort.

What’s happening …
  • Following the success of our November concert – rehearsals are going well for Bach’s St John Passion in May. Not a typical time for a Passiontide concert but on 5 May we are delighted to welcome six professional soloists from Harry Christopher’s ‘The Sixteen’ to sing with us, supported by Marches Baroque orchestra, in J S Bach’s St John Passion.

    Tickets are now available online, or from selected outlets.

    Please note that this concert will be performed at St Andrew’s Church, Presteigne. Hope to see you there!
