Special Thanks - Sponsors
We owe our thanks to Wiltshire Council, through the Amesbury Area Board, for their generous grant to us in the summer of 2016. This enabled us to purchase our own Yamaha keyboard and accessories and also to upgrade and develop our sound system. This equipment has been a great asset in both our summer and Christmas concerts as well as in rehearsal sessions. Much appreciated!

LARKHILL Choral Society performed Autumn and Winter of The Seasons by Haydn just before Christmas at the Larkhill Regimental Church.
It was so good it made me go home and buy a CD...All this was suggested by the Stella Quartet - quite an achievement from four stringed instruments and a harpsichord. Mists and metaphors fitted the Salisbury Plain music – making exactly in this winter concert. There were great risks and great rewards for both audience and performers on this extraordinary night in December.
