Wombourne Choral Society


A French Christmas Concert not to be missed…
Wombourne Choral Society's Christmas Concert on Saturday 10th December 2022 in Beckminster Methodist Church, Wolverhampton will have a very specific Baroque French feel to it, transporting the audience back to a 17th century Christmas celebration with Charpentier, one of France's most popular composers.

The main attraction will be the Baroque period instrument ensemble joining the choir in performances of Charpentier's 'Messe de Minuit', 'Noels pour les instruments' and several traditional French carols. This combination will make this concert performance particularly rare and one not to be missed.

The instrument ensemble will include the Theorbo, which is a bass continuo lute-like instrument, together with baroque violins and flutes and an historically informed performance.

Tickets for the concert are £15 each with children under 16 free. These are available from choir members, online at the website www.wombournechoralsociety.org.uk , phoning 01902 744447 or at the door on the night.

Join our new Youth Choir !
It’s all about singing… and at 93 years old, Wombourne & District Choral Society (WDCS) is still going strong – because singing is so good for you!

But to remain strong and to ensure that we’re here for another 90 years, we are starting Wombourne Youth Choir. So if you like singing, or even if you haven’t sung before but you would like to give it a go, and you’re somewhere between 13 and 21, then this is for you!

Weekly rehearsals will start in September on Mondays during term-time from 6.00pm to 7.00pm at Springdale Methodist Church, Warstones Road, Penn, Wolverhampton WV4 4LF.

Lead by Musical Director, Edd Caine, rehearsals will always be fun, giving opportunities for members to sing large scale choral works with experienced singers and a full orchestra, gaining experience in choral singing, supporting language learning by singing in different languages, gaining confidence singing in front of an audience, expanding your choral repertoire and learning about composers old and new.

Open to anyone who wants to take part and develop their interest in singing, there will no audition and it doesn’t matter if you haven’t done any singing before ( though if you have, that would be great! ). There will be no entrance or membership fee initially as full support is coming from WDCS but there may be a membership subscription at a later date once the Youth Choir is firmly established, in order to cover rehearsal room hire, concert and other expenses.

So what are you waiting for?
