The Society is based in the North Wiltshire town of Corsham. We have about 40 members drawn from the town itself and the surrounding area which embraces Bath, Chippenham and Melksham. For Spring 2014 we are rehearsing with our sister choir Organum to prepare for our major joint enterprise in May, Karl Jenkins' acclaimed mass for peace, The Armed Man. Rehearsals on Tuesdays from 7.30 to 9.30 alternate each week between Corsham Town Hall and St Mary's Church, Julian Road in Bath.
We are on the lookout for new members, particularly tenors and basses, and invite anyone who is interested in joining us to contact our Membership Secretary, Margaret Waters
We perform music from a wide spectrum of the choral repertoire. Recently our concert programmes have included works ranging from Tallis and Purcell through Bach and Mozart to Rutter and Jenkins.
Our concerts in 2013 saw us present a lighthearted musical soiree, Sugar and Spice, with a variety of popular and entertaining items, and then - in a joint venture with Bath choirs Organum and Noctis - a spectacular performance of Carl Orff's dramatic Carmina Burana.
We aim to provide something for everyone to enjoy.
For something very different, in July 2013 an intrepid group of our members capitalised on our links with Bath choir Organum by joining them on a singing tour in Tuscany. Despite the summer heat, successful concerts in Florence and Montecatini combined with energetic sightseeing in this picturesque part of Italy to make for a memorable trip, cementing our friendships and our musical partnership with our fellow singers in Organum.
