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.

This year's performances have included  Bach's St John Passion (March 2023); a Children and Youth Spring Concert (March 2023) and an exciting Summer Concert, with all of our choirs, of Bob Chilcott's music and Alexandre L'Estrange's Zimbe! - a celebration of African music.
