“Barnet Choral Society was founded in 1940 and is currently around 100 strong. We provide an opportunity to learn and enjoy choral music in a relaxed but purposeful atmosphere (with occasional social events to spice things up a bit).

We’re a non-auditioned choir and welcome singers of all ages and abilities, with a mix of material which we hope will suit everybody. Our repertoire has ranged from old to new; from sacred works to opera choruses and folk songs; from light-hearted to serious and from straightforward to difficult.

We give four concerts a year using professional soloists and orchestras where appropriate. We normally perform in Barnet but occasionally elsewhere – St Albans Cathedral, for example. From time to time we organise short tours abroad – we’ve been to Barcelona, Prague, Verona and Cyprus.”
