Wareham Choral Society

- Wareham's choir since 1947!


Our next event is a Come-and-Sing afternoon on Saturday 3rd November. Our traditional Christmas concert is on Saturday December 15th.

We are an aspirational choir, directed by a professional musician, Hazel Ricketts, who enjoys working with enthusiastic singers, both trained and untrained.

We enjoy the challenge of new music and are familiar with the standard choral repertoire.

We have vacancies in all parts. There are no  auditions, but enthusiasm and commitment are essential. We'd like to hear from you!

We rehearse in the United Reformed Church in Wareham on Monday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm, beginning in September, preparing for several concerts each year. 

Our traditional Christmas concert is held in Lady St Mary's Church in Wareham.

We belong to the Dorset Guild of Singers, and we join with other local Guild choirs every two years to perform larger-scale works at the Lighthouse in Poole. 

In non-Guild years, we perform an Easter concert, usually at Lady St. Mary.

In recent years  we have extended our season and our repertoire to encompass a summer concert using iconic venues in the Purbecks. We hope to continue this new tradition!

TWe have also hosted  very successful Come-and-Sing afternoons and we shall hold more of these events in future.

Our fees are £50 each term. Scholarships may be  available for young people.

We are a registered charity, and regularly donate to local charities from the proceeds of our concerts. Member subscriptions can be gift-aided; you can download a gift-aid form here.
