Welcome to Basildon Choral – a *diamond* choir

60 years old this year!

We are enjoying the celebrations to mark our inauguration 60 years ago this month! On Saturday 3rd November our birthday concert was attended by an enthusiastic audience who were impressed by the mighty Goundod Stabat Mater followed by Rossini’s delightful, operatic Petite Messe Solennelle.

Why not join us as we prepare for our carol concerts just before Christmas? No audition is required. Come along and give us a try. We are a friendly crowd. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 14th November at 7.45-9.45pm at Langdon Hills Methodist Church, Basildon SS16 6EX.

A growing choir of long standing with an excellent reputation, we sing five concerts a year including a family carol concert, light music, a ‘Come and Sing’ and choral works with orchestra, using professional musicians and soloists. We also enjoy singing tours abroad and fun events throughout the year.

*Diamond Anniversary Year*

Celebrations began on Saturday 14th April with a ‘Come and Sing’ performance of Carmina Burana, featuring some members of the Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs and the London Percussion Ensemble – ‘a real treat for the audience – and for Basildon!’

In July  we contributed to a marvellous combined choir (over 150) performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah in Arundel Cathedral – ‘a powerful and moving experience.’

After the Gounod and Rossini concert at the beginning of November we enjoyed a  celebratory dinner at Orsett Golf Club later in the month!

    From Chris D:
    Great concert last night right from the start. In the Stabat Mater the male voices in particular came over with a very mellow sound. Nice to hear Neil and Gerard (soloists) back again, and that wonderful concert grand with Christine’s playing was out of this world.
