Concentus Chorale is considered to be a relatively unique group in that we are not aware of any other choir of our size which sings such a wide ranging repertoire of music. An example of this diversity is typified in a recent concert which included music from les Misérables, Mama Mia, Queen - We Will Rock You, Simon and Garfunkel, the Carpenters, Jersey Boys, Adiemus, Carmen and Nabucco to name but a few. Our principal goal is to attain friendship and all new singers are specifically introduced to 'parent' members so as to ensure full support throughout to enhance integration into the choir.

A small, friendly group of singers who enjoy rehearsing and performing locally. Our motto is 'Singing for Pleasure'. While the ability to read music is an advantage, this is not a pre-requisite for joining the choir as during rehearsals members are taught how to follow a score. The choir regularly entertains within the local community. Repertoire is varied and includes seasonal music, a range of traditional songs and also songs from the shows.
