Shrewsbury Choral Society is a mixed amateur choir drawn from Shropshire and the Welsh borders. We meet weekly to rehearse and give 4 concerts each year. If you would like to join us, click here, you will be made very welcome.

Unlike many choirs, which tend to stay within their "comfort zone" and stick to the standard choral repertoire, we draw inspiration from a wide variety of styles. In recent concerts we have tackled a creole mass from Latin America, the "Nidaros Jazz Mass" by well-known contemporary composer Bob Chilcott, and some modern spirituals by Patrick Larley. This doesn't mean that we ignore the "old favourites" - our repertoire also includes the Mozart Requiem alongside many other classics.

Finally, and most importantly, we have a lot of fun! Why not come along and see for yourself?
