That's the principle of Thame Choral Society, a 50-strong, mixed-voice choir that performs a wide range of choral music from renaissance and baroque to the present day.
Formed in 1960 by Geoffrey Chaplin, then headmaster of the newly-opened Wenman School, it is Thame's longest-running choral group. The non-audition choir is welcoming and friendly and invites anyone wishing to find out more to come to one of their Wednesday evening rehearsals at Haddenham Methodist Church starting at 7.30 pm.

Saturday, 9 February 2019 Open Workshop on Mozart's Requiem
Saturday, 11 May 2019 Performance of Mozart's Requiem at the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, HADDENHAM
Rehearsals for Spring Concert
Our offering for Spring 2019 is Mozart's glorious Requiem, surely one of the finest and most popular works in the choral repertoire. We'll be peforming it with an orchestra and professional soloists on Saturday, 11th May 2019 at St Mary's Parish Church in Haddenham (not Thame this time).
Anyone who loves singing and would like to be part of the performance is invited to join our regular choir members at rehearsals, which take place on Wednesday evenings at Haddenam Methodist Church from 7.30 pm until 9.30 pm. Copies of the score will be available to hire for a modest fee and if you would like to bring your own copy, we're using the Novello edition edited by Duncan Druce.
Please do contact us if you'd like any more details but, better still, come along to one of our Wednesday evening rehearsals to see for yourself and enjoy a taster. You're assured of a warm welcome
As part of the Mozart Requiem Season, we are holding a whole day open workshop to explore the choral parts on Saturday, 9th February 2019 from 10 am until 4 pm at the Methodist Church in Haddenham. Click on this link to download and print the details and registration form.
