Richmondshire Choral Society

ACTIVITIESRichmondshire Choral Society is an amateur society with about 50-60 members. The society gives two concerts a year, one in December and the other in March or April, or, very occasionally, May. Performances are usually given in the wonderful acoustic of St Mary’s Church, Richmond accompanied by the magnificent St Mary’s organ or an instrumental ensemble where appropriate.

The repertoire is mainly of choral works for large ensembles but the choir does not stick with just the ‘tried and tested’ favourites. It has a policy of performing Handel’s Messiah in Spring at not less than 4 year intervals (2009, 2013, 2017) so that it always sounds fresh and new.

Its new Conductor (his preferred title) is Peter Stallworthy, who has great experience with choirs and orchestras mainly in Lancashire and the Manchester area.
MEMBERSHIPRehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm in Richmond Methodist Church Rooms, Dundas Street. There is normally no audition for new members (at the Music Director’s discretion).
