ABOUT OUR CHOIR
St Albans Choral Society is one of the leading large amateur choirs in Hertfordshire, singing to a high standard in beautiful concert venues. We perform at least four concerts a year, including one in St Albans Abbey, with superb professional soloists and orchestras. We enjoy the strong leadership of our Music Director George Vass and our accompanist Richard Harvey. If you would like to join us, please get in touch.
The Choir’s 75th Anniversary Season runs from September 2019 with many special events to mark it.
There will be two concerts in St Albans Abbey – Saturday 23rd November 2019 and Saturday 25th April 2020.
23rd November concert has a special St Albans theme. The Martyrs’ Call by Richard James Harvey, inspired by the martyrs’ statues by Rory Young in the Cathedral Nave, and….
The Story of St Alban by Liz Lane, which includes children from St Albans High School Junior Chamber Choir and Alban City School.
Our April concert in St Albans Abbey will be the Mozart Requiem and a commissioned piece by Richard Blackford entitled Pietà.
Choir members will celebrate by holding a 75th Anniversary Dinner on the very date of the first concert in December 1944.
This year we also celebrate George Vass’s 25 years as Musical Director and Richard Harvey’s 20 years as accompanist.
