Welcome to Dover Choral Society
Founded in 1892, Dover Choral Society presents two major concerts every year.
New members of any age and ability are always welcome. We offer the first three rehearsals as a trial period to see if you enjoy singing, which we are sure you will! If you would like to join, you are invited to contact the secretary (see the contact us page) or are welcome at any of our rehearsals which take place every Thursday evening from 7:30 to 9:30 at St. Mary’s Parish Centre, Dover (CT16 1BY). We always have a break during rehearsals so you will get to know everyone! Our in-person rehearsals will restart at the time and location detailed above from 9th September 2021.
Programmes contain a wide variety of choral works, both sacred and secular, using professional instrumentalists and soloists. Both major performances are held at various local church venues, typically on the penultimate Saturday of November, and one near the Easter period.
Each summer we join with other local musicians to present the Dover Festival Proms Concert in support of local charities. Other musical and social events also take place throughout the year.
Friends of Dover Choral Society include both singing and non-singing members. Friends receive tickets for both of our yearly concerts, as well as up-to-date news of additional concerts and other activities of the Society.
