Keswick Choral Society is a mixed voice choir for people in Keswick and the surrounding area.

  • We sing for two terms, each ending with a concert. We also take part in Evensongs at local churches and are sometimes invited to other occasions
  • Rehearsals take place at the Crosthwaite Parish Room next to the Co-op in Keswick from 7.00-9.00pm
  • Members should complete a membership form at the beginning of the Autumn, and, for health & safety purposes, should sign in at the beginning of the rehearsal
  • There is a refreshment break about 8pm, all members are encouraged to take turns making these
  • The AGM takes place about 2/3 weeks into the Autumn Term
  • We have social events: in past years these have been a post-Christmas dinner and a summer social event

Subscriptions

Subscriptions are set each year. The Treasurer would prefer these to be paid for both terms in the autumn as this aids financial management, but it is not compulsory. This year the cost is £70 (£35 per term).

Music Provision

Music is hired by the Librarian who will let you know in good time which edition will be used so that you can use your own if appropriate.

Concert Dress

Men: dark suits, KCS bow ties (provided by the society), black shoes & socks, white long-sleeved shirts

Women: black trousers or long skirts, black socks or tights, black tops, black jackets or cardigans if required

 Leaving the Society

The Musical Director reserves the right to ask a member to leave if they are struggling to learn the music or attend rehearsals. Members leaving the KCS should inform the Membership Secretary, Joyce Berry, berryjoyce1949@gmail.com, 01931 714828, and return music with plastic wallets and music folders to the Librarian, and bow-ties to the Secretary.
