Our concerts are held in St Laurence’s Church, Ludlow, a magical venue given five stars in Simon Jenkins’ England’s 1000 Best Churches. We perform in three main concerts each year, in March/April, June and November. We invite other choirs and performers to join us for the Ludlow Family Christmas Concert and also hold a 1-day workshop in May which is open to non-members.
The choir performs a wide range of music, from the traditional choral repertoire to less familiar earlier and more-modern works. Our Music Director, Patrick Larley, is well-known and respected both as a choral and orchestral conductor and as a composer.
Founded in 1858, the Society currently has around 130 members. We are always keen to welcome new people and we do not hold auditions for entry. Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings.
The Society owns its own modular steel staging which is available for hire to other organisations for use in the church and elsewhere.
