Eynsham Choral Society (ECS) is a community choir. It was founded in 1980 by a small group who wanted to improve their singing technique and perform locally. The choir members come from a wide area, including Oxford, Witney and Burford as well as Eynsham.
We've recently performed The Creation by Haydn and Dvorjak's mass in D. Our next season (2023-24) will include Messiah and Faure's Requiem.
We welcome anyone who enjoys singing and would like to perform a variety of great choral music. The choir has a 'no auditions' policy, and members range from accomplished amateur singers who can take on solo roles, to beginners who sometimes cannot read music.
ECS provides a warm and creative atmosphere in which members can learn more about music and singing. We welcome people of all ages and are particularly keen to attract younger members. New members are welcome!
We employ professional or semi-professional vocal soloists and orchestral musicians for our concerts, which regularly receive good reviews in the local press.
