Come and Join Us!

Summertown Choral Society gives two concerts a year, generally in January/February and May/June, in North Oxford venues. The year consists of two terms, and runs from early September to May or June, with short breaks for Christmas and Easter.

Joining SCS

Summertown Choral Society welcomes new members of all ages, voices, and abilities. There is no audition. Just come along and sing with us in a rehearsal before deciding whether you'd like to join. The first rehearsal of the new term is on Thursday 7th September 2017; we will be registering new members for several weeks after this.
