Welcome to Bexhill Choral Society!
We are a friendly, enthusiastic, non-audition choral society in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex.
We currently have over 50 members and warmly welcome new singers. Under our Director of Music, Kenneth Roberts, we perform 3 concerts during the year, featuring a wide range of choral music.
We also organise social events and have a thriving support group of Friends.
We’re back to singing together!
We are now holding short in-person rehearsals at Little Common Community Centre on Wednesdays from 7-8 p.m. We are being very careful, so rehearsals are for one hour only, with limited numbers, and there is a strict protocol including 2m spacing, no mingling, additional cleaning, plenty of ventilation, singing quietly, and wearing face-coverings throughout. Some members join on Zoom, with recordings also available afterwards. Despite all the restrictions, members have described these very limited rehearsals as ‘uplifting’ and ‘a joy’ and ‘feeling part of a choir again’. We hope to continue throughout the summer and into the autumn, in preparation for a concert on October 16th see Future Events – fingers crossed!

You can listen to Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus from our October 2019 concert here Ave Verum Corpus – YouTube and a selection from our Christmas 2019 concert here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ovx3bvqJi8 or search for Bexhill Choral Christmas on YouTube. The concert was accompanied by the Cinque Ports Brass and this selection includes the sparkling ‘Caribbean Christmas’, conductor Kenneth Robert’s rearrangement of familiar carols for brass.
Even Scrooge would have warmed to Christmas with this presentation. It was different and fun. Conductor Ken Roberts put together a splendidly varied programme…a delightful entertaining ‘Christmas evening” Lark Reviews, December 2019
