Requests for us to sing at charity events

From time to time Weymouth Choral Society (WCS) is invited to sing at events such as music festivals, outdoor events, charity carol singing and Christmas fayres. We can only accept a few invitations – particularly in the run-up to Christmas – as we may not be able to have sufficient singers or, more importantly, an accompanist/director available on the requested date(s).

If you would like us to sing at your event, please contact us at least three months in advance in order that we can circulate the request first to the committee and then to the WCS membership as a whole. In the first instance, please email details of your request to .

WCS is a registered charity and a fee or donation will be required for singing at your event. All monies received by WCS go towards rehearsal and concert venue hire, music hire and/or purchase, programme printing and publicity, as well as concert fees for musicians and soloists.

WCS AT BEST OF DORSET SHOW 2016

Weymouth Choral Society took part for the first time in the Best of Dorset Show on 5 June 106 at the Weymouth Pavilion.  The show brings  everything that’s good about Dorset together in one place, and has been a phenomenal success over the past 15 years.  It was jam-packed with exhibitions, attractions and entertainment.  The Pavilion stage played host to several live performances throughout the day including theatre dance, and of course singing from the choral society.   The photo shows committee member Beryl Hamlet with her display.

Greenhill Gardens

Weymouth Choral Society was honoured to kick off the 2016 season of free entertainment in the beautiful setting of Greenhill Gardens. Under cover of the newly painted gazebo we gave a taster of our forthcoming Summer Symphony Concert – singing a selection of spirituals, popular songs from the musicals and Land of Hope and Glory, conducted by Helen Brind and accompanied by Louise Dukes on the accordion. This was a first for us, and we hope very much to repeat it. The Friends of Greenhill Gardens went to great efforts to make us welcome and facilitate our performance. Teas and ice cream were taken in the café afterwards.
