Highworth Choral Society is a friendly non-auditioned choir from a small but historic town in the north-east corner of Wiltshire. The choir usually performs three concerts annually in the local area singing a wide range of music from traditional choral favourites to lighter modern pieces.
 
Choir Performance   Concerts are usually staged in Highworth, with the Christmas concert at St Michael's Church, the Spring concert at St. Michael's or Highworth Recreation Centre, dependent upon scale and content and the Summer concert, with more of a social element, at Warneford School; all are fairly close to the town centre. On occasion the choir sings at venues out of the town and 2009 saw the choir travelling to sing in Highworth's twin town Pontorson.
 
Highworth has had a Choral Society since 1978 and currently has about 50 members, of a wide range of ages and backgrounds and is keen to accept new members into all voice sections. Although the choir is non-auditioned the ability to sing tunefully would be useful and being familiar with reading music even more so. Prospective new members are always made welcome at any rehearsal night. Read quotes from our audience and our existing members on what they think of the society and our performances.
 
Since January 2014, our Musical Director has been Jacki Pattenden. We work with professional soloists and orchestras for some works but prefer to use homegrown talent whenever possible. We have gained a reputation for concerts of the highest quality.
