Stroud Choral Society
Stroud Choral Society was founded in 1834 and therefore is one of the oldest choral societies in Britain. However, we are always moving with the times and in recent years have formed a childrens choir - The Minpins - and a youth. Both groups will sing with us occasionally and also have their own concert programme.
Typically we perform four major concerts throughout the year, singing in venues such as Bath Abbey and Tewkesbury Abbey.
Our repertoire in recent years has included Belshazzar's Feast by William Walton, The German Requiem by Brahms, The Chichester Psalms by Leonard Berstein and Rutter's Requiem.
Want to know more or possibly sing with us? Please visit the Contact Details page.
At present we are at our full capacity for membership, except for a limited nymber of spaces in the Tenor section. If you are an experienced Tenor choral singer and wish to apply to join us, please see the Contact Details page.
