The Choir

The earliest records we have of Tring Choral Society date back to 1894, the first known concert took place in the Victoria Hall, Tring, in that year. The Society flourished after the Second World War under the direction of John Lowdell and Roland Stevens. Since 1974, its success has continued under the direction of Colin Stevens. The present strength of the Society is between 70 and 80 voices.

Whilst the Society focuses principally on the main classical choral repertoire, from time to time it has commissioned new works. The Society also, on occasions, joins with other Choral Societies and Schools to perform major works, at such venues as the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall.

The Society has an enviable local reputation for the consistently high quality of its concerts. Professional soloists are always engaged, and we use an excellent orchestra for most performances. The weekly rehearsals, under Colin Stevens’ direction, are a well-balanced blend of discipline and informality: demanding, but enjoyable.

There are three regular concerts a year in Winter, Spring and Summer, with some additional events for special occasions. The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in the centre of Tring is the usual concert venue.

The choir holds social events too, and often provides singers for joint choir ventures and charity events.
