Welcome to the website of St Albans Choral Society.  We are one of the leading amateur choirs in Hertfordshire, singing to a high standard in beautiful concert venues around St Albans and the surrounding area.  Read on to find out more about our choir, our concerts, and how to join or support us. 

Concert news

Join us on Sunday 10 December for our 2023 Christmas Celebration.  St Albans Choral Society first gave a Christmas concert in 1944 and has continued to do so ever since; this concert marks the start of Christmas for many people.  The concert will include James Francis Brown’s fabulous ‘Hertfordshire Carols’, written for and premiered by the choir in 2021, James MacMillan’s stirring anthem ‘O Radiant Dawn’, and a wide range of other carols, old and new, by composers including John Rutter, Bob Chilcott and David Willcocks. There will also be festive readings from members of the choir and the chance to join in with traditional Christmas carols.
After the concert, festive refreshments will be provided by and on behalf of Centre 33.

Visit our Concerts page for more details.
