Feltham Choral Society was formed in 1973, when a group of singers got together to perform Handel's Messiah. Since then many types of music have been performed, from Renaissance right through to contemporary commissioned works. We are a friendly choir, currently with around 35 members, and are affiliated to Making Music. We rehearse on Wednesdays at St. Dunstan's Church, St. Dunstan's Road, Feltham. TW13 4JY from 7.30 to 9.30pm, with a break for refreshments and a chat.
We usually perform 3 or 4 concerts per year, although there are sometimes other opportunities to sing, eg. Christmas Carols at local venues. As often as we can afford it, we employ professional soloists and orchestral players to enhance our concerts. For details of our future concerts, click here: Forthcoming Concerts.
To help cover running costs (eg. hire of church, musical director's, accompanist's, soloist's and orchestral players' professional fees) there is an evening class type subscription fee, which is currently £129 for the year September 2015 to July 2016, with a concessionary rate of £102 for students, senior citizens and unwaged. However, arrangements can be made to pay termly if necessary. New members joining during the year pay the remaining proportion of the fee. When you consider that the full fee works out at less than £4 per evening, it is extremely good value for money; also bear in mind that concerts with an orchestra and soloists can cost up to £3,000! We also arrange social and fund raising events throughout the year to help cover costs.
