2019 - 20 SEASON

Welcome to Portishead Choral Society! We are a group of about 80 singers, men and women, dedicated to singing and providing performances of mostly classical music in four voice parts (soprano, alto, tenor and bass).

We normally hold 3 concerts a year, in December, March and May/early June, on a Saturday evening. The December Concert has one or two seasonal classical pieces and then a selection of Christmas Carols. The March and May concerts comprise further classical pieces although quite often the May/June concert includes lighter works.

We are often invited to contribute to other musical events as well eg in recent years we have sung carols at Tyntesfield House and Adlington House and have taken part in the Pill Festival.

We rehearse at the Folk Hall on Portishead High Street, starting at 7.45pm on Thursday evenings.

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.

The choir and its conductor and soloists are to be congratulated on providing a challenging but also very entertaining evening of mostly unfamiliar music, interpreted with gusto and no little finesse. Peter Hawkins
