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.

Some recordings from recent concerts are here

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:

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:

Coming up we will be performing as follows:

Saturday 6th April Bach St John Passion

Royston Choral Society marks the start of Passiontide in 2019 with a performance of Bach's St John Passion. Performed in the original German, this piece dramatically tells the story of Christ's Passion. The soloists include Daniel Joy as the Evangelist and Lukas Kargl as Jesus.
Tickets are available online at 'bit.ly/RCSTickets'

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.
