“I’m so pleased that I found Basildon Choral”

Reaction to our recent Carol Concert

Our newest member writes:

As Christmas 2016 was approaching, I finally made the decision to fulfil my wish to sing Christmas carols in a choir. I’m so pleased that I found Basildon Choral Society, who have openly welcomed and supported me, whilst omitting any judgemental auditions.
Albeit a little nervous before and during their annual Christmas Carol Concert, I was assured by the conductor’s, Stephen Hope, professionalism and followed experienced fellow soprano’s lead, which undoubtedly made for a most wonderful experience for me.
At the end of the concert, receiving a standing ovation from the audience was recognition that I am part of a group who are sharing happiness and joy to all who were present and I am truly humbled.
I’m looking forward participating in future events with Basildon Choral Society, that include a variety of great music including sacred, popular, folk and songs from shows.

And two members of the audience said:

What a wonderful sound you all made tonight, the acoustics, the choir and the organ, quite stunning plus the lovely readings. My friends and I just loved it. Will be very interested in the Mozart in April.

The concert, choir and acoustics were wonderful, the sound resonated! It’s the best Christmas concert I’ve heard and it was good to hear some new pieces too. The conductor obviously gets the best from the choir and I can tell he wants perfection! I belong to the Eastwood Chorale and I’m keen to join for the Come and Sing Mozart Requiem on 8th April.

      Yes Denise, anyone can attend our rehearsals. Our rehearsal is on Wednesday as you will have seen from the website.

      There are no auditions. Just come along and have a listen, have a sing and see if it’s for you.
