Welcome to the Stour Choral Society.

The choir

The Stour Choral Society celebrates four decades of choral singing and aims to provide a stimulating time where good music and friendship co-exist.

We are a friendly, mixed-voice choir (SATB) who enjoy performing works from a large and varied choral repertoire including Handel's Messiah, Mozart's Mass in C minor, Mendelssohn's Elijah, Rutter's Magnificat, as well as lighter classical pieces.

We usually give three concerts a year, within Manningtree and the surrounding area bordering Essex and Suffolk.

We have about 50 singers and welcome new members. Please browse through the site to find out more about us. We normally rehearse in the Methodist Hall, South Street, Manningtree on Monday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Stour Choral Society is affiliated to Making Music, and is a registered charity, number 1171954.

We now seek to appoint a new Musical Director from Jan 2019 to replace our current Musical Director who, after directing us for 16 years, is leaving in order that he can pursue other musical activities. Find out more here.
