Stretton Choral Society
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.
Following the retirement of our previous Musical Director, David Hart, in May 2011, our Musical Director has been Paul Kelly. Paul was already known to the choir as he had been playing trumpet in Ensemble Musicale, the orchestra which comes together to accompany the choir in our 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.
Our rehearsal accompanist is Nikko Grégoire. www.musicalnykko.co.uk
