Portishead Choral Society is a friendly, medium-sized, choral society with close links to the local community. Currently we have about eighty members, drawn mainly, but not exclusively, from Portishead. We are dedicated to singing and providing performances of mostly classical music in four voice parts (soprano, alto, tenor and bass).

Rehearsals restarted on 9th September. Please note our new venue is Portishead Methodist Church, and the start time is 7.45pm.

Our ‘by invitation’ concert on 16th December was a resounding success. Jonathan Palmer’s review is posted here, along with a post of comments from members of the society, here.

Next term, we will be starting rehearsals on Thursday 6 January 2022, and will be continuing with extracts from substantial works, and resurrecting some of the music we were rehearsing for the cancelled concert of 4 April 2020. The concert, planned for Saturday 19 March 2022, will include excerpts from Mendelssohn’s Hymn of Praise, Parry’s Blest Pair of Sirens, and Jonathan Palmer’s She Walks in Beauty. As the concert will take place within Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Year, some of the music will have Royal associations. For more information, please see Jonathan’s post.

A New Year is always an excellent time to join a choir, as it usually coincides with a new programme of music. We recently had two new members. Let’s have some more in January, and some returners as well – it’s time to increase our membership, and new members will be very welcome!  Please see Join Us for more details. We will do our best to keep COVID-19 at a distance so it doesn’t stop us from making music together!
