The first rehearsal for the Summer term will be on Wednesday 19 April 2017.
We rehearse every Wednesday evening during school terms from 7.45-9.45 pm at Ashdown Primary School, Herne Road, Crowborough TN6 2NT. The school hall is a great place to sing in and there’s ample car parking space. We don’t have formal auditions and no one will ask you to sing on your own, so why not come to a rehearsal and give singing with us a try? You can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
Here’s what one of our members says about us:
“I’ve had a great time over the last few years rediscovering the joy of singing, learning some wonderful new music and honing my musicianship. Thank you to Colin (Moore) and Derek (Watmough) for their enthusiastic and light-hearted nurturing of our musical skills to bring out the best in us and produce performances of which, I think, we didn’t believe ourselves capable.”
Founded in 1967 by Colin Moore, Crowborough Choral Society has sung in six countries and in seven languages, and over the years has performed over 300 works composed between 1565 and 2012.
The society performs two ‘classical’ concerts a year, and a more light-hearted summer concert. We also perform Christmas carols at local churches.
In addition to singing, the society organises a range of social events for members and their families and friends, including quiz evenings, barn dances and race nights. In recent years the choir has visited Poland, Spain and Hungary. A concert in St Michael’s Church, Budapest was shared with the Zrínyi Miklós Egyetemi Énekkar choir.
