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'.

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.

We now know that a Carnforth Choral Society existed in 1915 and lasted until at least 1935. Like many other organisations we suspect that it was disbanded for the Second World War with the present Society reformed in 1965 making 2015 its 50th anniversary year.

As soon as you become a member of CCS, we will ask you to pay the current term's subscription (£15 in 2015-16), 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.
