WDCS

Wombourne and District Choral Society





The performance of Handel's Messiah was dedicated to Pat Walder, past chairman of the society and a member of the Tenor section.


Pat was highly respected for his musical knowledge and guidance.


He is sadly missed by all.

WELCOME!


Welcome to all who enjoy high quality choral music, whether as a participant or a listener.

We are a well-established, mixed choir of some 100 singers, drawn from South Staffordshire, Shropshire and the West Midlands. We have a varied repertoire, mainly full scale classical works, often with an orchestra but sometimes performing more intimate pieces such as madrigals and part-songs.

New singers are always welcome so do give us a try. There are no auditions and the only requirements are enthusiasm, and the ability to hold a note! Not everyone in the choir reads music fluently and CDs are often available to help people to learn their parts.

We rehearse on Monday evenings 7.30 - 9.30 during term time at The Kings School, Regis Road, Tettenhall, Wolverhampton, WV6 8XG.

Chairman's Announcement:


We are pleased to announce that having fully and carefully reassessed his own personal and professional commitments, our current Musical Director Ian Clarke has indicated his wish to remain with WDCS and to continue in his role for the foreseeable future. Clearly for us this is very good news and his decision has been warmly welcomed by the whole choir. We are very grateful to all those who expressed interest in our earlier advertised vacancy, each of whom have received personal notification and our sincere thanks for their approaches to us.
