Oldham Choral Society finds its voice again

Date published: 19 October 2021

Amateur singers in Oldham have found their voice again after Covid restrictions put paid to regular rehearsals.

Performances and rehearsals for Oldham Choral Society fell victim to Covid social-distancing rules, and a restriction on singing indoors.

Now that restrictions have been relaxed, rehearsals have resumed, with members of the group meeting at Chadderton Town Hall every Monday evening between 7.30 and 9.30pm.

The group welcome new members of all abilities, and are keen to promote the mental health benefits of choral singing, including expanding your social circle, and increasing confidence.

Oldham Choral Society is one of the leading amateur choirs in the NorthWest and performs about four concerts a year in Oldham, Manchester and beyond.

Its repertoire includes most of the major choral works by Bach, Elgar, Handel, Haydn, Mendelsohn, Rossini and many others.

Their next concert will take place in St Paul’s church, Royton at 7pm on Sunday November 21.

The programme will include the Vivaldi ‘Gloria’ and the Rutter ‘Gloria’.
