Southend Choral Society is an enthusiastic & committed choir of around 90 singers, and we offer a warm welcome to all newcomers, of any age & all walks of life.
We perform a wide range of sacred & secular choral music, and present four concerts each year. These include a Family Christmas Concert with a brass band & children’s choir, and major choral works with orchestra, using professional soloists & musicians.
We have been enjoying weekly Zoom-based rehearsals on Thursdays at 8.10pm, so we can continue to sing together. Sessions are open to all, and anyone interested in joining us should contact

We have at last been able to hold some socially distanced outdoor rehearsals, which were very enjoyable, & greatly appreciated by all who took part - see gallery

Southend Choral Society was established in 1943 at the request of Essex County Welfare Committee for the recreation of Service personnel. Since 1983 Roger Humphrey has been the Musical Director, and the choir continues to flourish, constantly expanding its repertoire, and striving to make music of the highest possible standard, in a supportive, friendly and enjoyable environment.
