Welcome to the Richmondshire Choral Society website

  • Welcome to the Richmondshire Choral Society website

    Our Mission Statement

    Our mission is to enable local people to perform great choral music, both familiar and challenging, supported by a professional conductor and accompanist, while enjoying the physical, mental and social value of belonging to a choir.

    Our website serves several purposes:

    • Tickets are on sale here from TicketSource for our concerts in the six weeks or so before the date
    • It has information to help our choir members 
    • It has photographs of the choir

    ​We hope you'll find what you want in it somewhere. If not, please contact us to ask.

    Covid 19 Precautions

    The Committee has taken the decision to start rehearsals on Monday 12 April 2021 to prepare for a performance of Gabriel Fauré's Requiem on Friday 18 June.

    This will, of course, still be subject to government regulations at the time and we are now hopeful that the vaccination programme could mean that the current precautions can be relaxed if not removed completely.


    Please keep checking this page for updates. Although we will send out information by email, we have found that it does not get to all members.



    While we can't meet in person

    Several choir members are now singing online with the Self Isolation Choir.

    To attend the Self Isolation Christmas at Home Nine Lessons and Carols just click on the poster below. There is also a link to make a 'ticket' donation to the Forget Me Not Chorus which uses music and singing to help dememntia sufferers. This is encouraged but entirely optional.


















    The Poll below

    Our polls are just for fun. Nothing is recorded other than the number of people who have made each choice. They will make no difference to the running of the choir, though may indicate a topic that needs to be addressed! (Not the current poll)
