Welcome

Monmouth Choral Society is a welcoming and friendly choir of about 120 members in  four sections soprano, alto, tenor and bass. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings 7.30-9.30 p.m.

We perform four concerts every year, one in each term plus the Christmas Carol concert. Our repertoire shares much with the great choral tradition of works from Bach and Handel to Rutter and Britten.

We sing at the Blake Theatre, Monmouth School and St Mary’s church, Monmouth; we  rehearse at the Bridges Community Centre, Monmouth.
