Welcome to Stroud Choral Society

WHO is Stroud Choral Society?


We are one of the oldest amateur choirs in the country performing in front of audiences in Stroud and beyond since 1834.

Stroud Choral Society comprises an adult choir of around 120 members and children's and youth choirs of around 50 members. We present at least four concerts a year in the Stroud district, including Cirencester, Nailsworth, Minchinhampton and other venues.

Our 2024 season began with a rare performance of Joseph Haydn's Nelson Mass alongside his brother Michael Haydn's Requiem. Our summer concert (with the Youth Choir) featured works by John Rutter, Bob Chilcott, Aaron Copland, Betty Roe and Simon and Garfunkel.

We are now looking forward to our major autumn concert on 16th November, in the magnificent setting of Tewkesbury Abbey. We will be performing Ralph Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony (a powerful setting of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass) along with Stanford's Songs of the Fleet and Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture.
