Top Notes

Weekend at St. Edmundsbury Cathedral

Goring Chamber Choir was the visiting choir at St. Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, over the weekend of 30th August – 1stSeptember. We sang choral evensong on each of the three days and eucharist on the Sunday.

These cathedral weekends are an annual fixture in our calendar. They give us the opportunity to sing glorious music in a majestic and tranquil place. No wonder that many members feel it is the high point of the year.

About the Choir

Based in Goring-on-Thames, our choir draws members from around South Oxfordshire and Berkshire. We sing all year round, giving concerts in Spring, Autumn and at Christmas. Our repertoire ranges from the Classical through traditional to contemporary music. While our concerts always have familiar and popular pieces, we enjoy exploring new or lesser-known works — it keeps our programme fresh. More about the choir

With such a strong showing over so wide a range of musical styles, there will be much to look forward to in Goring Chamber Choir's future concerts Henley Standard

We welcome singers to join the choir. If you'd like to become a member, contact us and come to a few of our rehearsals on Thursday evenings — you can join in and see how it feels. If you want to go ahead, you'll audition with our Musical Director. Our singers must be able to read sheet music, as we don't learn by ear, but we're not all polished sight-readers. Join us
