One of the longest-established and most respected choirs in Southern England, we are a large choir performing choral music from the classical and contemporary repertoire with professional orchestras and soloists. We sing together with the Southampton University Phil, giving us a unique blend of youthful and experienced voices. The choir performs major concerts three times each year, generally at Southampton Guildhall or Winchester Cathedral. Additional performances include our popular concert of Christmas Music at Turner Sims (the Concert Hall at the University of Southampton). We also hold regular Choral Workshops for keen singers who are interested in developing their ability.
We adopted Mayfield Nurseries as our new nominated charity in June 2011 and are delighted that our association with them has resulted in their raising over £1600 so far. Mayfield have supplied floral decoration for the stage for our Guildhall concerts over the season, at cost, and we're grateful to them for this.
We are also grateful to Bluthner Piano Centre Ltd for their kind support and sponsorship of the choir.

Next Concert: Verdi - Requiem, winchester cathedral
Due to Music Dept exam recitals, our rehearsal on 3 June is in Lecture Theatre 4A – aka Rm 4011; access via stairs or lifts – in the Mathematics Building (Bldg 54). It's the tall one next to the Turner Sims.
Next rehearsal on 13 May at TS, as usual.
We're squeezing in an additional rehearsal, given that the SU Phil have only just returned from their Easter vacation.

Rehearsals for Verdi Requiem begin on Monday 7 January. Turner Sims, 7.30pm.
Usual time; usual place!
