Clacton Choral Society was founded in 1888

We are a mixed and very friendly soprano, alto, tenor and bass choir of about 70 people.

We hold no auditions, but achieve a high standard for our three concerts each year, with local musicians.

Come to our SATURDAY SING on 6th January 2018

Clacton Choral is hosting another ‘Saturday Sing’ on 6th January 2018, to start the preparations for its Springtime concert on 28th April – and if you have ever wondered what it would be like to sing with them, then this is your chance to come along and find out – ladies and gents all welcome! The doors are open at St James’ Church Hall for a 1.00pm start, and it finishes at 4.00pm. The music for the concert, ‘Four Great Composers’, will be introduced, with recordings and background explained, and everyone will ‘have a go’ at singing it all through together.

They are beautiful, well-known pieces such as Zadok the Priest by Handel; Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach; the beautiful Laudate Dominum by Mozart (from Solemn Vespers) and new pieces to discover by Haydn from his Little Organ Mass - plus Mozart’s Te Deum. And further to tempt new singers, the concert itself will be accompanied by the reputed orchestra ‘Kingfisher Sinfonietta’, led by Beth Spendlove.

New singers will need to book a place, so please contact Gill Osborne on 01255 427691 or; then, if you enjoy your ‘Saturday Sing’, we hope you will stay to learn the music with the choir in our regular rehearsals, which take place every Monday evening in St James' Church hall from 7.15pm to 9.30pm, with a refreshment break.


Our next concert will be on Saturday, 28th April 2018 (7:30PM) at St James' Church, Tower Road, Clacton on Sea

We usually give three concerts each year.

We don’t hold auditions – if you can read music it will make it easier for you, but we welcome anyone who is keen to sing!

If you’re wondering whether to join the choir, it’s easy –as long as you can sing in tune and have Monday evenings free from 7.15 – 9.30pm to rehearse.

Why not give us a try? We’ll teach you the notes and provide the scores.

You’ll be made very welcome!

And if you decide to stay, we’ve lots of extra learning support on offer too.
