The first Wednesday of term is always an Open Rehearsal. Come and have a sing with us! It doesn’t matter whether it’s years since you sang at school, or whether you’re a regular singer – all are welcome to try us, with no obligation. Chat to our singers over coffee and cake in the interval.
We are a friendly choir of men and women with a wide range of ages and abilities, united by a love of singing. This term we’ll be learning the Mozart Requiem and Vaughan Williams Mass in G minor for our November concert, followed by Carols for Christmas.
As well as giving concerts in Birmingham and the Midlands, we tour abroad every 3 years – great for singing experiences, as well as strengthening choir friendships. Further information can be found on our Tours page: Tours
The Open Rehearsal starts at 7pm on Wednesday 6th September – we hope to see you there!
Following our very successful concert in Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall, we’re really looking forward to singing again with Liverpool Welsh Choral on Saturday (17th June). The Liverpool singers will join us on the stage of the Elgar Concert Hall, Bramall Music building, to sing Carmina Burana and the Chichester Psalms once again.
The Lord Mayor of Birmingham and her consort will be there – we hope you will be too!
Do you love singing? Come and try a choir practice with Birmingham Festival Choral Society! (No obligation). Chat to our singers over coffee and cake in the interval.
