WCS Chamber Choir

The WCS Chamber Choir was a smaller group of singers drawn from the main choir that was available to perform at special events. It has ceased operations due to the COVID19 pandemic.

Recent Press Comments

Dvořák: Stabat Mater "Wokingham area is extraordinarily fortunate to enjoy such resources and to have a Society with the courage and imagination to bring such a wonderful vocal work to a wider public."

Bach: St. John Passion "The subtlety of interpretation from the combined musical resources resulted in a profoundly uplifting experience in an ideal setting."

Purcell: Dido & Aeneas "The choir engaged the audience with clear diction and remarkable dynamic contrasts."

Mozart: Great Mass in C minor "Another triumph for Wokingham Choral Society...deservedly acknowledged by the audience with rapturous applause."

Handel: Dixit Dominus "...makes daunting demands upon the human voice, more akin to orchestral writing. The performance took the choir to a new level of achievement."

Mendelssohn: Elijah "A heavenly chorus uses energy to retell Mendelssohn's Elijah..."

Bach Mass in B minor "...a stunning performance of Bach's monumental Mass in B minor. The rapt attention of the audience and its exuberant applause spoke volumes."

African Sanctus "...their performance of African Sanctus by David Fanshawe was electrifying. The singers were wonderful, especially the choirs' sopranos rendering war dance notes."

Mozart Requiem "...captured Mozart's exploration of the range of emotions roused by an acute awareness of mortality."

Bach Christmas Oratorio "...well balanced and incisive and captured perfectly the contrasting moods of the reflective chorales and the distinctive choruses."

Handel Messiah "...the choir was on top form. The evening, from every aspect, resulted in a flagship performance."

Wokingham Choral Academy

Wokingham Choral Academy is a non-auditioned, mixed, training choir for anyone over 18 years who wants to start singing, keep learning or revisit existing singing skills. The Academy sings simpler pieces, suited to less experienced singers.

Several current Choral Society members began by singing with the Choral Academy.
