Welcome to Winchester Music Club
Winchester Music Club is one of Hampshire’s longest established choral groups with over 100 members and an associated orchestra. An independent charity run by its members, the choir benefits greatly from a close association with Winchester College, whose Master of Music, David Thomas, is our musical director. The choir not only enjoys first class facilities for rehearsal, but also the support of other music staff of the college to facilitate sectional practise sessions for the various voice groups. Established singers who join us will find an environment which allows them to participate at a high level in choral music - with at least one performance every year in Winchester Cathedral. We normally engage young professional soloists, but on occasion concerts have included household names such as Kiri Te Kanawa and Bryn Terfel. Our collegiate support also means that less-practised or aspiring singers who have only sung irregularly but want to improve, can find our choir an ideal opportunity to realise their ambitions. A good ear, a good voice, and enthusiasm, are often all that is needed to open the door to a fulfilling and sociable leisure activity. Read more
