Brenchley Choral Society


This choir formed in 1996 to perform a “Scratch Messiah”………..and has re-formed itself every year since!

Under the expert direction of Marjorie Ayling, we assemble each Spring for just ten rehearsals leading up to a performance in All Saints’ Church in Brenchley, accompanied by a full, professional orchestra in front of a packed audience.

Over the years, we have performed many major works, including Haydn’s Creation, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Faure’s Requiem, as well as Selections of Opera Choruses and Traditional Folk Songs.

Our primary aim is to provide the platform for anybody, regardless of experience, who has ever wanted to sing with a large choir and professional musicians.

Our secondary aim is to raise money for local charities and, once the substantial costs have been met by subscriptions and ticket sales, any surplus, totalling thousands of pounds over the years, has been sent to Hospice in the Weald, Kent Air Ambulance, Alzheimer’s Society, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Headway, among others.

New singers are always welcomed – no experience necessary, and no auditions required!
