Centenary Celebration Concert

Nailsea Choral Society will be 100 years old in 2025. We are planning to mark our centenary with a gala concert in Clifton Cathedral on Saturday 17th May 2025. We will be performing The Dream of Gerontius by Edward Elgar under the direction of our highly regarded Music Director Tom Williams.

The Dream of Gerontius is considered by many as a top level work in the choral repertoire. It requires opera-style soloists, and an augmented choir and orchestra so is a huge undertaking for a relatively unknown choir like ours. Performing it would really put us on the map. However, we need your help to raise funding to make this dream a reality!

Please help us by supporting our Centenary Fundraising:

Past Events:

Just Good Company, 10th February at Holy Trinity:

“Performing to a full house a fun evening was had by those attending the Just Good Company concert on 10th February at Holy Trinity. The group clearly enjoyed themselves too, engaging the audience, producing a relaxed atmosphere which had the audience singing along to many well-known songs.”

Miscellany 27th April at United Reformed Church:

A packed audience enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of Tea and Tunes with Miscellany, significantly helping Nailsea Choral Society with fundraising for its centenary celebrations next year.

Huge thanks to the marvellously talented singers of Miscellany for putting together such a delightful programme of varied tunes with solo spots for singers and pianist, Rachel Hamilton.

Miscellany confidently led the audience on a nostalgic musical journey across the British Isles through hills & vales, rivers & seas, and woods & meadows. The audience was most appreciative and also appreciated the opportunity for a chat after the concert over tea & cake – all home-made by Miscellany singers – in the convivial setting of the church hall.

Thanks also to the enthusiastic tea-making team and to the kind hospitality of Nailsea’s United Reformed Church.
