We pride ourselves on being a particularly friendly and supportive society, and believe that this element marks us out from other musical societies. We run a popular annual residential weekend at a beautiful Grade 1 listed 13th century manor house in Charney Bassett (close to Oxford), as well as a Saturday voice workshop each term. In addition, Chorus members will frequently sing in other concerts on an ad hoc basis, including 'from scratch' and flash mob performances, and members of the Orchestra occasionally play quartets or form other small musical groups for social functions. After rehearsals, a group inevitably heads off to a local pub to round off the evening.
We also run recruitment evenings at the beginning of each term, providing us with time to catch up with friends and contacts. New members are, however, welcome to come along to any rehearsal to try us out. We have a Christmas supper and members continue to meet monthly over the summer break.
