Whitstable Choral Society

Our mission is to make the joy of music accessible to all.

Whitstable Choral Society has a reputation for quality and range of performance. We perform at least 4 times a year around the Canterbury district, with world-class soloists and the Festival Chamber Orchestra.

The choir dates back over eighty years and prides itself on being a community choir. Whitstable Choral Society’s Director, David Newsholme, leads the singers to perform beyond their expectations with great passion and sensitivity.

Our friendly society welcomes enthusiastic singers of all abilities who are committed to the discipline of regular rehearsals and concerts. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at St John’s Church in Argyle Road, Whitstable.

Choral Workshop

The society has taken the decision to cancel the Choral Workshop in May 2020. Once the current pandemic is over, we shall look forward to resuming activities as soon as possible.

So please watch this space for up-to-date information.
