NEW EXCITING BEGINNING...
Following the massive effects of COVID-19, we were unable to
perform any of our planned concerts for several months. During
this time Ian Clarke decided that the time had come to retire
as our Musical Director, plus our accompanist, Tony Bridgewater
decided to leave because of other new musical commitments. On
top of this, our present rehearsal venue was no longer available.
However, with the sterling efforts of our Chairman, Henry Ibberson,
Eileen Brown and other members of the committee, these major
problems have all been solved...
We now have a NEW Musical Director, Edd Caine, who will bring with him a NEW accompanist...
a NEW rehearsal venue at Smestow School and...also a CHRISTMAS
CONCERT on Saturday 11th December 2021 at a Beckminster Methodist
Church, Wolverhampton. Rehearsals start on Monday 13th September
and District Choral Society was founded in 1929 and is a well-established,
mixed choir of some 90 singers, drawn from the local area and
has a varied repertoire, mainly full classical works, often performed
with professional soloists and an orchestra of professional musicians.
Patron of the choir is John Rutter, the renowned and popular
choral composer. Wombourne & District Choral Society is a
registered charity No: 1067808
