Summertown Choral Society singing in a concert with a large, period orchestra.

Welcome to Summertown Choral Society!

Come and join us as we start rehearsals for our summer 2019 concert. Thursday evenings 8-9:30 pm. All voice parts and abilities welcome. We do not audition.

Summertown Choral Society is a large, friendly, and non-auditioning North Oxford choir, established in 1961. Recent performances have featured works by Bach, Mozart, Haydn and Rossini, as well as new commissions by Grayston Ives, Philip Moore and Andrew Gant.

Our summer 2019 concert will feature the first performance of a new piece written for Summertown Choral Society by Grayston (Bill) Ives. SCS premiered Ives's Songs of Ariel to great acclaim in May 2009, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with him again. The programme for this concert also includes Schubert's substantial last Mass (D950), and music by Beethoven, Mozart, and Joseph and Michael Haydn.

Rehearsals for the summer concert begin on Thursday 21st February, at St Michael's Church, Lonsdale Road. New members in all voice parts are always welcome, so if you like to sing, we'd love you to join us!
