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 www.peterbassano.com for further information.

Wendover Choral Society is supported by Aylesbury Vale Arts Council and 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.
