We are Larkhill Choral Society and we are a friendly choir of c.30 strong, with no audition required for entry. Saying that, we are committed to providing quality musical experiences for the audiences at our concerts. As part of this, members have access to professional recording of the pieces we are learning, and also midi practice files for each voice part, created by our Musical Director, for ease of home practice.
We sing a variety of music from classical through country and folk songs to occasional jazz and spiritual songs. We encourage people to join us for one or more rehearsals on a trial basis. Some of our members have sight-reading ability, but this is a skill which comes with practice, so anyone interested in joining should not be deterred if they are unable to sight-read.
We rehearse Tuesday evenings at Antrobus House; No 39 Salisbury Road, Amesbury, Wiltshire, SP4 7HH, from 7.00-9.00 pm. Rehearsals start again on 16th January 2018.
If you would like to join us even if only for a trial basis we would love to welcome you. Contact us here.
On 4 December 2010 Larkhill Choral Society gave its first performance as a registered charity. Well established on Salisbury Plain, the society lists eminent local musicians Ben Lamb, Alan Harwood, Peter Ford and Lewis Gaston among its former conductors. LCS continued to flourish, forging a successful relationship with Royal Holloway, University of London in creating the Larkhill Sinfonia, an excellent student ensemble which benefited from the professional leadership of Salisbury violinist Marian Givens. Joint concerts with Andover Choral Society and Genesis Choral singing Elijah and The Pearl Fishers respectively were highlights in 2014 and 2105. The society has a long-standing commitment to showcasing young talent, and many wonderful young soloists have appeared alongside local professionals.
