Pre Tour Concert
Saturday 12th October 2019
St Francis Church, Beatrice Road, Salisbury
On March 9th we took part in a truly memorable evening:
The concert, held in St.Mark’s Church, Salisbury, was to remember & celebrate the contribution made by our highly talented organist and accompanist, David Coram
Salisbury Community Choir is a thriving amateur choir with over 150 members
The choir sings for the sheer love of it, but also challenges itself to develop up to and beyond its potential. The choir is non auditioned, some members read music and some do not. The mixture works and with patient encouragement from Jeremy, our fantastic Musical Director, the choir achieves amazing performance successes, whilst having a lot of fun along the way!
We are ambitious and adventurous musically, commissioning new works and organising and performing in both small and large scale concerts all over the UK. We regularly tour abroad, mainly to Europe, but have adventured further afield.
The SCC has a big heart and we have a real community focus, supporting each other and fundraising for a diverse range of charities, from Hospices to Homelessness.
If you love to sing, have a spirit of adventure and would like to be part of our community why not come and try us out!
The SCC thrives on the variety of the music it sings, from choral classics to classic pop!

- Alexander L’Estrange & Joanna Forbes-L’Estrange: Freedom! – The Power of Song (SCC commission)
