Welcome to Marple Choral Society!

NEW REHEARSAL VENUE
From Monday November 22nd until further notice, Marple Choral Society will rehearse in  High Lane Village Hall, SK6 8AB.
There is more information (including a map) on our rehearsal venue page.
For further information, watch this space, or, more reliably, the e-mails from the secretary (secretary@marplechoralsociety.org.uk).

MARPLE CHORAL SOCIETY returned to rehearsals in September 2021 after an absence of nearly two years.
For anyone thinking of singing with us, this is a good time to join, as we will be spending the early rehearsals re-finding our voices and reminding ourselves all about singing together. New members would be able to contribute to this process of re-building the choir.
There is a lot more about the choir here on this very web site.
If you wish to join please contact the secretary on secretary@marplechoralsociety.org.uk
Rehearsals are on Monday evenings, starting at 8pm. Every care will be taken over any Covid safety issues.


Marple Choral SocietyWho are we?

Marple Choral Society comprises a diverse group of (about sixty-five) people united by their love of choral singing.  We are coached by a musical director and accompanist and bring in other musicians (including the Stockport Symphony Orchestra) and solo singers for our concerts.

What do we do?

We sing works that fit in the English choral tradition, covering Baroque, Classical and modern pieces, some a capella and most accompanied.  (For examples, see our Concert History and our current programme.)

When do we rehearse?

Weekly (Monday evenings) under the tutelage of Musical Director Ian Crawford, preparing for two major concerts and our popular Christmas concert.  We hold an annual “come and sing” day (a day’s rehearsal leading to an informal performance), ideal for dipping your toe in the choral waters, and in the summer term, we broaden our repertoire, leading up to a sing-and-social event.

Where do we rehearse and perform?

Rehearsals are held at Marple Methodist Church (where we sing the Christmas concert) and our major concerts are usually given at Norbury Parish Church (which has an excellent organ and space to accommodate choir and orchestra).
