Welcome to Stroud Choral Society. We’re one of the oldest amateur choirs in the country, performing in front of audiences in Stroud and beyond since 1834.

With around 120 members, we aim to present at least four concerts a year, in Stroud, Cirencester, Nailsworth, Minchinhampton and other venues.

Rehearsals are on Monday evenings, normally held in the Music Hall at Marling School, Stroud, starting at 7.30pm.

Following our sell-out performance of Handel's Messiah in November, and our Christmas concert (featuring the Minpins), we are busy rehearsing for our spring concert: Bach's St John Passion.

Our next concert:

 J.S. Bach's St John Passion

 Saturday 18th March 2023

 St John Baptist Church


Tickets now on sale:

£25, £20 and £5 (restricted view) with u18s free

Tickets also available at Cirencester Council Offices, Cirencester Visitor Information Centre, "Shiny Goodness" Nailsworth, or on the door

Listen to one of our recordings of the lovely

Cantique de Jean Racine by Fauré

Youth choirs show us how it should be done!

Watch our talented youngsters performing a variety of songs in their summer concert recorded on YouTube during the 2021 Covid pandemic. This 30 minute concert is sure to lift your heart and soul!

The children all worked so hard to produce this concert and normally this would have been our main fundraiser of the year, with people paying £10 a ticket to watch.  If you feel you are able to make a donation to secure the future of the choir we would be very grateful.  Thank you.

Stroud Choral Society

Stroud Choral Society was founded in 1834 and is one of the oldest choral societies in Britain. However, we are always moving with the times and in recent years have formed both a children’s choir - The Minpins - and a youth choir. Both groups have their own concert programme, and occasionally sing with us, too.

Our repertoire in recent years has included Beethoven's Mass in C, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, Dvorak’s Requiem, the Verdi Requiem, Haydn’s Creation, Mendelssohn's Judas Maccabeus and Handel's Messiah.

The Next Generation

Stroud Choral Society is proud to have two youth choirs under its umbrella: The Minpins, and Stroud Choral Youth Choir.

Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings during term time in Nailsworth. For further information about either choir, please contact:
