We perform two main concerts per season: one at Christmas and one in the Spring. While members are strongly encouraged to attend as many rehearsals as they can, we do ask that as many members as possible attend the last three rehearsals prior to a concert. The rehearsal on the day of the concert is mandatory – you wouldn’t want to miss out on the essential coordination with our professional soloists and orchestra!

We love welcoming new members, and on your first rehearsal we will make sure you’re looked after, and your first three rehearsals are free to see if WCS is for you ! Click here for all the info on joining our choir.
