The choir pictured before their Spring 2014 concert at Morecambe.
A hearty welcome from Carnforth Choral Society
Carnforth Choral Society is a friendly bunch of people who share an interest in music and, especially, choral music. While most of our members are singers, we also welcome members who prefer to stay in the background helping 'backstage'.
Our next big event is our 50th Anniversary Spring Concert when we return to Christ Church, Broadway, Morecambe on Saturday, 9 May 2015 with 7.30pm start (doors open 7.00pm) to perform Coronation Mass by Mozart and Feel the Spirit by Rutter. Soloists are Lorna Sherrin (Soprano), Wendy Sharrock (Mezzo Soprano), Ederic Ibbotson (Tenor) and Brian Lancaster (Bass). Conductor is Martin Webster and accompanist, Richard Bromley. Tickets (£8) and information from Gill on 01524 730089. More details on our Concerts page.
We welcome new members and are a friendly, easy going , mixed bunch , nearly house trained, so why not give us a go?
Singers can join the choir at any time during the musical year and there are no auditions, or stipulations about being able to read music, although it obviously helps to have some who can.
There are about 55 existing members and new members are always welcome. There is no audition process.
As soon as you become a member of CCS, we will ask you to pay the current term's subscription (£15 in 2013-14), or pro rata if the term is already under way. Funds raised in this way, by ticket sales for non-charity concerts, and by occasional raffles at rehearsals and concerts, are used to cover the running expenses of the choir.
