Famous Musicians
Two of the most famous Stamfordians of the musical world have had some association with Stamford Choral. 
 Although he never directed the choir, Sir Malcolm Sargent, the famous conductor, was President for twenty years. The composer Michael Tippett attended Stamford School, and was a past President of the society. 

Sir Malcolm Sargent Trust
Since Malcolm Sargent’s death in 1967, the Society has sought to celebrate his contribution to music with the ‘Malcolm Sargent Concert’, a concert given in conjunction with the Stamford Endowed Schools Choral Society. This takes place every three years, and the next one will be performed in 2016.

Forthcoming

A warm welcome this September to members old and new. Join us at Stamford Methodist Church, Barn Hill, Stamford. We will be rehearsing Vivaldi's Gloria, accompanied by local orchestral players, and an exciting new work by local composer, Charles Paterson, along with Christmas carols old and new. New singers welcome in the opening weeks of each term. 

Vivaldi's beautiful setting of the Gloria, and the premier performance of a sparkling new piece by local composer Charles Paterson, 'Christmas Is Coming!'. This piece has been commissioned by Stamford Choral especially written to involve school choirs from the local area. We are especially pleased that we will be joined by local orchestral musicians and soloists for this concert, and the choirs of Malcolm Sargent Primary School and Stamford Welland Academy, and we are currently negotiating with St Gilbert's Primary School, in the hope that we can work with them, too! It promises to be quite a big event! There will be carols for choirs and audience too, so that you can sing in the Christmas season.

Mozart's sublime and remarkable Requiem with orchestral accompaniment and professional soloists. A chance to hear some of the loveliest choral music ever written, right on your doorstep. The rest of the programme is to be announced.

Summer concert. Our popular annual summer concert. Programme to be announced!
