Season 2021/22

Future Performances

Matthew Raisbeck – Music Director

Ashford Choral Society is one of the longest-running societies in existence, with a history of music-making since 1857.

Currently there is a membership of around 120 singers who usually perform three or four concerts each season during the period September to May. Every year the choir has the opportunity to perform some of the major works of the choral repertoire with leading soloists and a professional symphony orchestra. The society also holds an annual carol concert to raise money for chosen charities.

The society looks forward to resuming live performing and concerts in Autumn 2021 and our Music Director, Matthew Raisbeck, is looking forward to welcoming singers back after almost 18 months without rehearsals.

Singing has been greatly missed during the Coronavirus pandemic. The society believes that members have always benefitted socially as well as musically from membership and there is evidence that singing greatly contributes to recovery from Covid.

Ashford Choral Society has always wanted to share the joy of choral singing. We are a friendly society and you would be welcomed and given every encouragement.
