Romsey Choral Society, an adult SATB choir is widely recognised as one of the best amateur choirs in the South of England. Formed in 1981, it has a membership of around 95 singers, all of whom are auditioned on entry. The choir’s repertoire encompasses a wide range of choral works from Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern eras, as well as pieces by contemporary composers, including Bob Chilcott, John Rutter, Will Todd, Eric Whitacre and Howard Goodall.
RCS has a reputation for versatility and high quality performances, being equally comfortable with a capella, smaller-scale repertoire and major choral works requiring professional vocal and instrumental forces. It is also an ambitious and forward-thinking choir, having collaborated in the past with both the BBC Singers and Howard Goodall CBE.
