About us

Wendover Choral Society was founded over 50 years ago. We pride ourselves on being a community group open to all ages and abilities. Our rehearsals are informal and relaxed. We have a lot of fun at the rehearsals, in our social events and in staging our excellent concerts. We perform mostly classical music and it is not necessary to audition to join the choir. The choir is directed by Peter Bassano a most experienced musician and conductor, and also the most patient man in the world! See Peter Bassano on Wikipedia for further information.

Wendover Choral Society is supported by the Lionel Abel Smith Trust. We still have to raise money to promote our concerts and so organise a number of fund-raising and social events throughout the year.

Lionel Abel-Smith Trust


Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7.45 to 9.45 at St Mary's Church, Church Lane, Wendover, HP22 6NL

Join Us!

If you are interested in joining Wendover Choral Society, please feel free to turn up on a Thursday evening, you would be most welcome. As well as adults (over 18 years), we now welcome 16 and 17 year olds as members.

In order to exist as a choir it is necessary for all our members to pay an annual subscription, which is currently £150 per year and can be paid in two separate instalments of £75
