St Francis’ Church, Salisbury.


Thank you to our audiences

It is always reassuring when a good and appreciative audience turns out on a Saturday evening to attend one of our performances.  It is especially pleasing that on these occasions, as a Community Choir we are able, with our audiences’ support, to raise substantial funds for local charities.  This year we have raised £295 for the Stars Appeal, £745 for Salisbury Hospice,  over £1000 for the Salisbury Branch of Samaritans and £600 for the Alzheimer’s Day Centre in Salisbury.

The Year Ahead

This year we look forward to the choir learning and performing a wide range of music including two choir favourites, Faure’s Requiem and Palmeri’s Misatango. We are very proud that we have been invited to perform at Les Musicales de Redon in Brittany in July, an event that will be particularly exciting.

Saturday 23rd  March 2024 will see our Spring Concert, Turf and Surf taking place.  The concert celebrates the 200th anniversary of the founding of the RNLI and also marks the 100 year anniversary of the death of Charles Villiers Stanford. The choir is delighted to be joined by St Mark’s School Choir. Come and listen to us in St Francis’ Church, Salisbury at 5.30pm for a wonderful concert of songs depicting land and sea.

On Saturday 27th April, Kate Edgar Music and St Thomas’s Church are hosting the Salisbury Choir Festival. The day of choral singing runs from 10am to 8pm with seventeen choirs performing. Please come along and stay awhile. SCC is scheduled to start the day off at 10am. Entrance is free with a retiring collection for Cancer Research and St Thomas’s Church.  Refreshments will be available.

Saturday 22 June is the date of our Summer Concert at St Martin’s Church.  With works by varied composers such as Antonio Vivaldi, Ēriks Ešenvalds, and Martin Palmeri, the finale will be Faure’s Requiem Op 48.

The choir is on the road again this summer, singing in various places in Brittany. The concert as part of  Les Musicales de Redon will be on the evening of July 11th. Further details and ticketing will be via the Music Festival’s website. The link will be posted here when available.

And then there is Christmas 2024. Plans are already shaping up but more of that to come later!

If any of this sounds like something you would enjoy being part of we are always happy to hear from potential members.  Do please contact our Membership Secretary if you would like more information about the Choir.  Our next term of rehearsals starts on Thursday 11th April at Chafyn Grove School.

Salisbury Community Choir is a thriving amateur choir with over 130 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 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!

Recent repertoire includes:
