Welcome to Christ’s Hospital Choral Society
a choir privileged to rehearse and perform at Christ's Hospital School, just outside Horsham in West Sussex. We sing a broad range of music under the Director of Music at the school.
Our four concerts a year are atmospheric, beautiful, and very enjoyable for both singers and audience.
Tempted to join us? We don't have auditions; just come along, give us a try and see how enjoyable singing can be. See below for further information.
We are a choir for adults associated with the famous school near Horsham, West Sussex, formed in 1988 so that members of staff and people from the wider community could sing a range of choral music.
All voices are welcome – Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass
No connection with the school is necessary to belong.
We rehearse on a Thursday evening at Christ’s Hospital and perform three or four concerts each year.
Our workshops are open to visiting singers and are always very popular, featuring as they do internationally known conductors giving their take on the best of choral works.
Our Summer Concert
Our Summer concert was on Friday 14th June 2019 in the Chapel at Christ's Hospital.
Entitled "Songs of Town and Countryside" it featured the well known and loved work "Five Mystical Songs" by Ralph Vaughan Williams, a composer who lived just a few miles north of us at Leith Hill.
Other pieces included songs by Edward Elgar, Gustav Holst, and others, and the programme included an unusual, fun piece by Bob Chilcott "The Songs and Cries of London Town."
