Stretton Choral Society
Welcome to our website
courtesty of South Shropshire Journal
Stretton Choral Society, in its present format, was founded in 1977 and currently meets once a week in the newly refurbished United Reformed Church, Church Stretton, between September and May to rehearse for at least two public concerts each year.
A concert in December usually consists mainly of music related to the Christmas season and includes some Christmas carols for the audience to join in. A spring concert in early May allows for more substantial works in the classical and modern repertoires.

In May 2011 our Musical Director for the previous 12 years, David Hart, retired and, with effect from September 2011, Paul Kelly took over as our Musical Director. Paul was already known to the choir as he had been playing trumpet in Ensemble Musicale for several of our previous concerts. Paul has had a very extensive musical career and, in addition to directing the Stretton Choral Society, is currently also Musical Director for the Much Wenlock Male Voice Choir, the Shifnal Chorale and the Shropshire Chamber Orchestra.
At the same time the Society welcomed David Fisher as our rehearsal accompanist. Subsequently David has had to retire for health reasons and from September 2015 we welcomed NikÖ Grégoire as our accompanist.
