Who we are

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.

2022 is a year of celebration for WCS. Firstly, it is our 90th anniversary which means that not only have there been 90 years of making music and singing great works for the choir’s and local community’s enjoyment , but also 90 years of fun, making new friends and spending times with old ones. Secondly, 2022 has seen us back rehearsing with each other again, paying attention to the Covid regulations but also back to singing.

Come and join us whether you are already an established singer or a new one who has always wanted to join a choir but never quite dared to. Our Musical Director, Spencer Payne, helps us all to learn the music and gives us all confidence that we can do ourselves justice. To get a taster, come any Tuesday to a rehearsal, or come to our Singing Day in May, neither would commit you to anything and there are no scary auditions.

The Highlight of our celebratory year will be our Autumn concert when we will sing the Messiah with an orchestra. This will be a wonderful occasion to be in the audience, but an even better experience to be part of the choir!
