Who we are
Shrewsbury Cantata Choir is a mixed voice choir of some 50-60 members, under the musical direction of Thomas Payne, and based in Shrewsbury. Shropshire.
Where we are
We rehearse in St Nicholas Hall, at Shewsbury United Reformed Church, Coleham Head, Shrewsbury, SY3 7BJ.
What we sing
We have a varied repertoire ranging from major concert works (recent perfomances have included Rossini: Petite Messe Solennelle, JS Bach: St Mark Passion (Reconstruction), Brahms: German Requiem, Mendelssohn: Elijah) to lighter concerts where we sing a variety of short pieces, madrigals and modern part songs.
Our concerts are three times a year, normally on a Saturday evening.
New members are welcome
We take great pride in the quality of music we produce but this does not prevent us from being a very friendly choir and rehearsals are fun. We welcome singers of all ages prepared to give a high level of commitment to attending rehearsals and taking part in concerts. Experience of choral singing is helpful but not essential.
Prospective new singers are invited to attend a few rehearsals to find out if the choir would suit them.
Please use our contact form or come along to a rehearsal.
We rehearse in term time in St Nicholas Hall at Shrewsbury United Reformed Church. Coleham Head, Shrewsbury SY3 7BJ on a Wednesday evening. Rehearsals start promptly at 7.30pm and finish promptly at 9.00pm.
Subscription is £35 per term. This includes music hire.
The choir is sad to record the death of Peter Nottle, a founder member, last November.
There is a tribute to Peter here.
