Witham Choral Society News

New members always welcome!

We are always looking for new members to swell our ranks for the next season of concerts. If you have a desire to sing we would be delighted to see you. If you are under 26 your membership is completely free!

We rehearse at 7.45pm in the United Reformed Church, Witham (in Newland Street) every Tuesday evening in term time and we always have time for a sociable chat over a cup of tea or coffee at half-time. Once a month we hold a fund-raising bring and buy stall.

We hope to see you soon!

We are currently rehearsing for our next performance at Witham Public Hall – a ‘Last Night of the Witham Proms!’

In the news ...


‘Wow! What a great Last Night of the Proms concert on 11 March at Witham Public Hall. A near capacity audience who started the cheering after the first item – Zadok … the Priest. From the choir I could see the delight on their faces as they enjoyed every item on the programme from the opera choruses to Gabriel’s Oboe and Faure’s haunting Pavane. The orchestra was marvellous and trumpets, French horns, oboe, flute, clarinet, lead violin and cello were especially featured. All the proms favourites were enthusiastically received, flags were waved and the audience joined in Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem. Thank you musical director Patrick McCarthy for putting together such a wonderful programme!’

London Concert Trips

Join us on our regular concert trips to London venues; principally the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall.

All are very welcome to come on these trips which are extremely good value and provide some very popular musical treats. The price of the trip includes the luxury coach fee with pick-ups at Stanway, Copford, Coggeshall, Kelvedon, Witham, Hatfield Peverel, Great Baddow and Mountnessing.

This seasons list is very exciting, see the list below with dates in November and December for 2017.

Sunday matinees usually tend to get filled up. If you haven’t been before why not give it a try? They are great value – you won’t get it as cheaply independently. We usually get there with time to explore the Southbank with their wonderful food festival so it makes a good day out.

Thank you for your support! Best wishes, Clare
