Cirencester Choral Society

The first rehearsal of Cirencester Choral Society was held in the King’s Head Assembly Room on October 6, 1863, under the baton of the renowned 'musical missionary' Frederick Helmore, the former choirmaster to Prince Albert.

Although the society lay silent during the First World War until it was reformed in 1937, it is now a thriving and friendly society and in 2013 it celebrated its 150th anniversary year with a programme of special events.

Since 2005, the society's conductor has been Carleton Etherington, who has been organist of Tewkesbury Abbey since 1996.

The society rehearses on Tuesdays in St Peter's Hall, Cirencester.
