Welcome

Salisbury Musical Society is a mixed choir of about 120 voices. We perform major classical choral works in public concerts that are normally given in Salisbury Cathedral, three times a year, accompanied by a full orchestra. We also run occasional `Come and Sing’ events which are open to all.

DO YOU ENJOY CHORAL SINGING?   IF SO – SMS NEEDS YOU!!! 

Even if you like singing in the shower on your own, it isn’t a patch on performing in front of a large and appreciative audience. How about helping us to deliver major classical – and sometimes modern – choral works with a full orchestra and professional soloists? Salisbury Musical Society has been doing just that since 1923.

We welcome all voice parts – Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass (Tenors and Basses much needed). The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings (7.30pm) in Salisbury, and you would need to read music with reasonable ability, and pass an informal audition.  If you are not sure, you are very welcome to join as a rehearsing member for a term, without committing to a full subscription. It is a joy to sing works like Verdi’s Requiem, Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Britten’s War Requiem, Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Stanford’s Songs of the Fleet (great fun!) with an orchestra, all in the glorious setting of Salisbury Cathedral. In November 2021 we took on the monumental Monteverdi Vespers of 1610, in collaboration with other choirs. It was a huge and memorable event.

Singing is a great way to meet new people and make new friends.  Plus it’s a proven way to help both our physical and mental wellbeing.
