Stroud Choral Society 

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


Stroud Choral Society is deeply saddened at the news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen. Our thoughts are with King Charles and the Royal Family at this sad time.

With around 100 members, we aim to present at least four concerts a year, and rehearse in the music block at Marling School on Monday evenings.

We are currently rehearsing the marvellous Messiah, by Handel. It’s an exhilarating and rewarding work to sing, much loved by choirs and audiences alike, and it is great that we have been able to welcome a number of new members to our ranks for this new term.

If you are a choir member, you can join our closed group on Facebook (check your newsletter for details). We also have a Facebook page which anyone can join https://www.facebook.com/stroudchoral

Coming up ….

We’ll be performing The Messiah on 19th November at St Georges Church, Nailsworth and the following month we have a Christmas concert planned.

Our work for Spring 2023 will be Bach’s St John Passion.

If you are interested in finding out more about the choir, membership, our programme or our youth choirs, please contact us at stroudchoral@gmail.com.

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 earlier this year on YouTube. This 30 minute concert is sure to lift your heart and soul!

The children have all worked so hard to produce this concert and normally this would be 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, Dvorak’s Requiem, the Verdi Requiem, Haydn’s Creation and Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius.
