Kington Choral Society

This is Kington Choral Society

About us
  • We are based in the small market town of Kington, Herefordshire in the Welsh Borders.
  • We are a group of around 60 people with widely differing musical skills and experience who enjoy choral singing.
  • We sing a variety of choral works and give several public performances each year.
  • We rehearse most Monday evenings in Kingswood Hall with extra rehearsals before concerts.
  • Our concerts take place in St Mary’s Church, Kington.
  • Members are not auditioned, but continuing membership depends upon commitment, co-operation and enthusiasm.
  • Our Music Director is Robert Evans, whose first concert with us was the wonderful Christmas Oratorio in November 2016. Robert is an established soloist and consort singer performing with The Sixteen, The Cardinalls Musick, Alamire, Tenebrae, The Kings Consort, and The Gabrieli Consort.

What’s happening …
  • Thank you to all who packed into St. Mary’s to listen to our November concert. Numbering more than 200 our audience was treated to a varied programme described as both ‘thrilling’, and ‘sublime’. If we have stirred in you a need to sing but you can’t commit to weekly choir attendence make sure you have our next ‘Come & Sing’ in your diary – all singers welcome on Saturday 10th March when MD Robert Evans will be leading the workshop in Presteigne Assembly Rooms. Selected spirituals from Tippett’s Child of Our Time plus Stanford Motets. Numbers are restricted so watch for more booking details nearer the date.
