Canterbury Choral Society
Canterbury Cathedral concerts since 1951

Canterbury Choral Society has forged a reputation for outstanding levels of performance and is one of the most accomplished choral societies in South East England.

Admired for its quality of sound, ensemble and intonation, Canterbury Choral Society is a symphonic choir of which Canterbury can be proud. Canterbury Choral Society Youth Choir, formed in 2007, has provided a platform of excellence for younger voices which, like the adult choir, tackles repertoire in a wide variety of languages including German, Latin, Russian and occasionally English.

Led by our Music Director Richard Cooke since 1984, we perform four concerts and host Family Carols at Christmas in Canterbury Cathedral every year. Canterbury Festival has invited us to perform every year since its launch in 1984.

Whilst aiming for professional standards, Canterbury Choral Society is an amateur choir open to all who apply and pass an audition. If you would like to join us, come along to the open rehearsal on the Tuesday following each concert (except Family Carols).

From the Manager of the ECO

“The ECO loved working with you and the Canterbury Choral Society and their youth choir – what a fantastic combined chorus they made, definitely the best amateur chorus we have worked with in a very long time. Tom also observed that the choir management were terrific to work with on the day. You chose great soloists too!”
