Battersea Choral Society
Performing with passion for 20 years
Renowned in London, this friendly choir is brought together by a love of singing. We welcome members who, in turn, approach rehearsals and concerts with enthusiasm and commitment.
We rehearse every Tuesday evening in Battersea under the
expert direction of Sam Evans, and present three major concerts each year
in the beautiful setting of Holy Trinity Sloane Square.
- OUR NEXT CONCERT -
Saturday 23 March 2019
Holy Trinity Sloane Square, Sloane Street, SW1X 9BZ
Battersea Choral Society was delighted to perform its fifth Carol Concert at Holy Trinity Sloane Square, on Tuesday 11 December.
During our 20th anniversary celebrations, we are thrilled to have commissioned a new piece and overjoyed to have shared this world premiere with our audience – The Shepherds’ Tale – music by Thomas Hewitt Jones, words by Matt Harvey.
With our favourite Christmas carols, rousing music and the expectation of festive readings the evening was a huge success. Our Tenor Soloist, Samuel Jenkins, treated us to a couple of traditional delights. The choir joined him in singing Tavener God Is With Us – a Christmas proclamation.
This year The Choir with No Name benefited from the retiring collection and we are delighted to announce that we raised over £2,000. This great charity supports several choirs which have been set up, across the country, for people affected by homelessness. Their vision - that all people in our society will have a group of good friends with whom they can sing their hearts out.
