Welcome to Sale Choral Society
Singing in Sale since 1907
We are Sale's oldest choir. We started life as Sale and District Music Society in 1907 and have been singing here ever since. The pandemic years stopped us performing but we still met to practise on Zoom. It's good to be back together for rehearsals and concerts again.
What do we sing?
Our repertoire is largely traditional SATB oratorio from the Classical and Romantic eras through the 20 century up to the present day. We usually perform in the local churches of South Manchester. We give a platform to student soloists from the Royal Northern College of Music.
Collaborations with other choirs
For larger scale works we have often joined forces with other choirs. Our last big concert took place at the Royal Northern College of Music and was a collaboration with The Lindow Singers and a quartet of excellent soloists
Our Summer concert usually has a lighter flavour and can involve collaborations with local school choirs and Sale Gilbert & Sullivan Society. We have sung opera choruses, G&S, part songs and lighter music with a Jazzy feel.
We like trips away with other like-minded singers. By joining in Festival Choirs we have enjoyed trips to Isle of Man, Wymondham and Malta.
Trafford Arts Association
As a member of this organisation we enjoy collaborating with the other Arts Societies of Trafford especially when it comes to the Sale Arts Festival each June.
We are also a member of Making Music an umbrella organisation for leisure-time music groups and musicians across the UK.
