2015-16 SEASON

Welcome to Portishead Choral Society! We are a friendly medium-sized choir with close links to the local community. We rehearse at St Joseph's Church, West Hill and give our concerts in Gordano School New Hall or Portishead Methodist Church in the High Street.

Last season (2014-15) we celebrated our Diamond Jubilee in great style and with considerable success. Under our conductor Jonathan Palmer we are developing a reputation for enterprising programming and concerts which provide opportunities for audience participation.

Please use this website to find out more about us: full details of our concerts; where we rehearse and perform; how to join us; how to buy tickets to our concerts etc.

Here is some audience feedback from our Diamond Jubilee season:

‘We absolutely loved the evening and found it utterly uplifting’

‘The Choir really gave their all over the evening and all credit to them for such a performance’
