incorporating Shrewsbury School Community Choir

This (new) site is almost completed - please be patient!


Tickets for our performance of Verdi's Requiem in Birmingham Town Hall on 28 February are now available from the BTH box office.  Details of coach transport to and from Birmingham for choir and audience members will be available soon.

Update at 2 February: 
The Committee is aware of current difficulties in obtaining tickets from Birmingham Town Hall for Sunday 28 February, which lie primarily in their zoning restriction to the Stalls (until they can see if demand will require them to open other areas for us) and the School's inability to act as an alternative source right now. The latter is probably due to their understandable retention of some seats for formal use of the School and its guests. We are also aware that some members have booked seats on the Supporters' Coach(es) without confirmation to date of price and departure time ~ and, indeed, for the singers the exact departure time of the Choir Coaches.
 
We are working with the School to resolve these matters as soon as possible and, at the very least, will report some progress at the additional rehearsal this coming Sunday (7 February, 2.30 - 4.30pm) ~ after which there are still 3 full weeks before the concert.

Welcome to the Shropshire Charity Concerts web site

We are a non-auditioning choir aiming to perform a wide range of classical and contemporary choral works to a high standard at four performances a year. The two in-school concerts, held at the end of the Lent and Michaelmas Terms, are performed in the Alington Hall. Under the Shropshire Charity Concerts banner the choir perform Handel's Messiah each year on 23 December in Shrewsbury Abbey to raise money for local and national good causes.

The Shrewsbury School Community Choir, now about 120 strong, was formed in 1982 to introduce some outside interest in the Shrewsbury School Music Department, and to get external interaction with the students, who not only provide our orchestral accompaniment and soloists for in-school concerts but also join us to sing in some performances.
