Rehearsals and Concerts

After the busy end of 2021, SACS is preparing a new concert programme for its annual Abbey Concert on 23 April 2022, featuring Haydn’s ‘Nelson Mass’ and Richard Blackford’s  ‘Pietà’ (commissioned jointly by the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and St Albans Choral Society). We are looking forward to performing alongside tremendously talented soloists – Rebecca Bottone (soprano), Rebecca Afonwy-Jones (mezzo-soprano), Bradley Smith (tenor), Felix Kemp (baritone), and Amy Dickson (saxophone) and the fantastic Orchestra Nova, also musically led by the SACS Music DIrector, Geoorge Vass.


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.
