  • 60th anniversary

    2018 is the 60th anniversary of Didcot Choral Society.  Within the last 60, the choir, like our town of Didcot has seen much growth.  We have grown not just in the size of our membership but also in our ability and quality.

    Already this year we have performed works that we would not have considered previously,  March saw our impressive performance of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, Brahms' Liebeslieder  Neue Liebeslieder and Dyson's The Blacksmiths.
