Welcome to Bearsted Choral Society

Bearsted Choral Society is an amateur four-part choir of 50 members. We sing a variety of choral music spanning all musical periods. The Concerts archive provides a more detailed history of our varied repertoire.
Most of our concerts are given in and around Bearsted often with professional soloists and orchestra. 
We have a committed approach to our singing but our primary aim is to enjoy making music together. The choir is known for its friendliness, something which is highly valued by its members.

The society welcomes new members in all voice parts - soprano alto tenor and bass.
