Welcome to the website of the Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society(more...)
The Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society is a vibrant community of people from all walks of life who share a passion for classical, mixed voice choral singing. We welcome everyone that shares our love of singing and wishes to listen to, learn about or perform beautiful live music. Our aim is to engage and inspire both members and audiences alike through public performances. As a self-governing society, we enjoy the support of our own orchestra, and the freedom to achieve our aims through evolution, adaptation and innovation.
The Choir has been giving choral and orchestral concerts in and around Royal Tunbridge Wells since the founding of the choir in 1904. We stage two or three concerts of music from the classical choral repertoire each year under a professional conductor; major works with up to 150 singers are performed in the Tunbridge Wells Assembly Hall Theatre accompanied by the society's own orchestra. The choir also gives more intimate and informal concerts in local churches with instrumental ensembles and organ. Use this site to read all about us, our forthcoming events, and view past concert programmes and reviews from the past century.
Choral Society members are mainly drawn from both Kent and East Sussex, and we welcome enquiries from prospective new members irrespective of their age or previous choral experience. Younger members and Tenor and Bass singers are especially welcome. Please refer to our membership pages for details.
We were delighted that Rebecca Miller agreed to become our Musical Director from September 2012.
