Royston Choral Society (RCS) is a friendly, unauditioned choir of around 70 singers from a wide range of backgrounds and singing abilities united by enjoying singing together to produce memorable concerts.

Follow this link to see details of our next concert.

Some recordings from recent concerts can be seen on this link

Our most recent concert was performance of Bach's St John Passion in Ashwell Parish Church in April 2019. Performed in the original German, the soloists included Daniel Joy as the Evangelist and Lukas Kargl as Jesus.

We usually hold our Christmas concert in Royston Parish Church. In 2018, because of the dreadful fire that had taken place there, this picture shows us performing at the Meridian school instead:

In November 2018 we participated in a performance of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem. Held at Haileybury College, it was in collaboration with the college choirs and Hertfordshire Philharmonia. Here is a photo of the performers:

Coming up we will be performing as follows:

Saturday 29th June Songs of Love

A concert in Barkway Parish Church to include:
Brahms - Libeslieder Walzer
Lauridsen - Nocturnes
Alexander L'Estrange - Love's Philosophy
Schubert - Fantasia in F min for Four Hands.

RCS rehearses on Tuesday evenings 7.45- 9.45 in Royston Methodist Church and performs around four times a year in Royston and surrounding villages. New singers are welcome to join RCS by coming along to an open rehearsal.
