Formerly Thomas’s Choral Society since 1999, the newly named Battersea Choral Society is a friendly and motivated choir with an enviable reputation. Our repertoire is varied and exciting and we perform with professional orchestras and world-class soloists, led by our inspirational Musical Director, Sam Evans.
We are ambitious and, although we do not audition, we take our music and our performances seriously. We approach our rehearsals and sectionals with enthusiasm and we aim to give performances of the highest possible standard for our audiences; with every member, whatever their experience, valued and making a contribution.
We now perform three concerts a year in the stunningly beautiful Holy Trinity Sloane Square.
Our entry criteria are the ability to read music, great passion for classical choral works, commitment to rehearsals and an expectation to learn your notes at home; and the eagerness to sell tickets to everyone you know!
If you are interested in joining us, you are welcome to contact Adrienne Carr, chair of BCS, who will invite you to a rehearsal to see if this is the right choir for you. We are currently very keen to recruit more tenors and basses, but everyone is welcome.
We rehearse every Tuesday during term time, from 7.30pm-9.30pm, at St John Bosco College in Battersea (Parkham Street, SW11 3DQ).
BCS is run by a committee which is elected by its members every year. The committee takes care of all aspects of the organisation of the choir and the promotion of performances.
The current chair of the committee is Adrienne Carr.
