The Hampshire Choral Society is currently on mid-winter break. Rehearsals will resume on January 28th, 2020.

In Spring 2020, we will sing Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle, performed in the original version with two pianos and harmonium. Online registration for singers is now open, click here for information and links. For the semester schedule click here.

Many thanks to all the people who made our November concert such a success. We had one of the largest audiences ever, and it was a wonderful afternoon all around. We are especially proud of our Young People’s Chorus, who sang beautifully, and who joined us for a rousing version of Come, Ye Thankful People, Come.
