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.
Our most recent concert was on Saturday 24 June at St Saviour’s Church in St Albans, where we performed John Rutter’s Requiem, Bob Chilcott’s Canticles of Light, and Cecilia McDowall’s piece Ad lucem – A Canticle of Light.
After a break for the summer, our next concert is at St Albans Cathedral on Saturday 18 November, where we will perform Handel’s Messiah along with Orchestra Nova and four fantastic soloists: Elinor Rolfe Johnson, Rebecca Afonwy-Jones, Christopher Bowen and Alexander Ashworth.
