Summer concert

Rehearsals are well under way for our Summer 2018 concert, so save the date for your diaries:-

Saturday 9 June 2018, at 7pm.

This year Verwood Choral Society is 30 years old and has had the same musical director the whole time, Mrs Ann Mayo. A few founder-members are still with the choir, although membership has changed over the years. We are still rather short of men - or rather, the lower voices, as tenor can be sung by women - so if you fancy a sing and are a tenor, baritone or bass, then please join us.

We will have a varied programme of music in the concert; something for everyone, as the saying goes. Our usual mix of classical choral, folk, popular songs and some lighter pieces. The traditional singalong will return, as well.

Christmas Concert Time

It's nearly time for our Christmas concert.

Summer Concert 2017

The summer concert went well and the audience enjoyed themselves. They also dug deep into their pockets, as £690 was raised for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The choir performed a variety of musical numbers, ranging from "The Heavens Are Telling" from Haydn's "Creation" to "On Ilkley Moor B'aht Hat" and an entertaining rendition of the "Floral Dance" by the men. The concert ended with a roof-raising rendition of "Land of Hope and Glory", which was sung with great spirit by choir and audience alike.

Rehearsals for the Christmas concert start on 11 September -anyone who wishes to have a go will be made welcome.

Summer Concert

It's that time of year again! Not long to our summer concert. We will be singing a wide variety of songs and it should be a fun evening.
