About Truro Choral Society

Truro Choral Society started life as the Truro Singers in 1962, evolving gradually into the present form, and changing their name to Truro Choral Society in 1978.

Truro Choral Society is now one of the largest choral societies in Cornwall, with around 120 members. We perform major choral works as well as more contemporary pieces, including premieres.  As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations in 2012, we commissioned two new pieces of music from local composers Russell Pascoe and Paul Drayton, and we marked our recent 60th anniversary with "Ring Out, Wild Bells", composed for us by Becky McGlade.

Typically, we perform 3 concerts a year, often in Truro Cathedral. Our Past Performances page will illustrate our repertoire over recent years.

We welcome singers of all levels of experience, and no audition is required. Our mission is to give everyone the opportunity to sing good choral music, so the ability to read music, whilst desirable, is not obligatory. We particularly welcome younger singers, and to that end, students in full-time education are not asked to pay choir fees.
