The Leicester Grammar School Choral Society
The Choral Society, about 100 strong, is a mixture of pupils, staff, parents, friends and people from the local community. It rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm during the Lent Term and gives a concert towards the end of the term with the School’s First Orchestra.
Works performed over the years include Carmina Burana by Orff, masses by Haydn and Beethoven, Mozart’s Requiem, The Creation by Haydn, Requiem and Feel the Spirit by John Rutter, Benjamin Britten's St Nicolas, Puccini’s Messa di Gloria and the music of Ivor Novello. Last year’s concert included Five Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams and Songs of the Fleet by Stanford.
New members are always welcome. There is no audition process or subscription, but members are expected to provide their own music.
In 2019 we shall perform Fauré Requiem performed with the LGS First Orchestra. We will also be singing some lighter works alongside the Lower School Singers and Mixed Voices.
