The Rutland Choral Society is a registered charity (since 1971) based in Oakham, and gives its members the opportunity to sing a wide variety of choral music, both sacred and secular, in a friendly and welcoming environment.
The Society usually promotes termly concerts (December, March/April and June/July) each year, usually taking place in All Saints Parish Church in Oakham. The repertoire usually includes a selection of works, ranging from parts of larger works through light classics to more popular numbers. The Christmas concert usually includes a good sprinkling of carols for choir and audience, and in the Summer Term we usually concentrate on the lighter end of the spectrum, including songs from the shows and similar items.
We meet on Monday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:00pm in the hall at the Methodist Church in Northgate, Oakham, and you can usually be sure that some will adjourn to the Wheatsheaf for refreshment afterwards!
This season’s concerts are on Saturday 2 December 2017, Saturday 24 March 2018 and Saturday 7 July 2018 at All Saints Church Oakham.
If you are interested in joining the choir please contact the Musical Director, Caroline Trutz, the Membership Secretary, Sheila Kitcheman, or just come along to a Monday evening rehearsal. There is no audition, and we are a very friendly bunch!
