Ledbury Choral Society, formed in 1962, is a small, friendly group of dedicated singers.

Choir at St Michael's

We are a four-part choir of 45 singers and put on three concerts a year featuring major choral works as well as songs from the renaissance period to the modern day. Each year at Christmas we present a carol concertin the lovely parish church of St Michael and All Angels, always a highly successful event in the town.

In April each year we aim to present a major choral work in St Michael's. This year we performed Handel's Messiah and last year the Mozart Requiem both with full orchestra.  Recently we have had successful concerts of Mendelssohn's Elijah and in 2007 the popular and exciting Mass for Peace, The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins in front of an audience of over 300.  In recent years, concerts have included Haydn's Nelson Mass, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Fauré’s Requiem, and Elgar’s The Music Makers.

We have developed a close musical link with Newent Choral Society and Tarrington Brass and they are often included in our concerts. We always welcome new members. Perhaps you are a new singer or recently moved into the area; or maybe you wish to take up singing again. You just need to love singing and keen to learn from our musical director, Malcolm Macleod. Under the expert tuition of Malcolm, you will sing better than you ever imagined!

We rehearse on Thursday evenings at the Methodist Church in The Homend from 7.30 to 9.15 pm.
