Welcome to Basildon Choral – a *diamond* choir

60 years old this year!

We are enjoying the celebrations to mark our inauguration 60 years ago last month! On Saturday 3rd November our birthday concert was attended by an enthusiastic audience who were impressed by the mighty Gounod Stabat Mater followed by Rossini’s delightful, operatic Petite Messe Solennelle. Our carol concerts complete the year on 22nd December.

Why not join us as we prepare for our café-style concerts in February? No audition is required. Come along and give us a try. We are a friendly crowd. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 9th January, normally at 7.45-9.45pm (but 7.15pm on this first night back after Christmas and the New Year) 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.

    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.
