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.

Spring Concert of Mozart Favourites
Our Spring concert is fast approaching! The concert, which this year is being held at St Mary's Parish Church, Haddenham, features some of Mozart's most popular works - the short motet Ave verum corpus (K.616), the clarinet concerto in A major (K.622) and the Requiem (K.626), surely one of the finest and most popular works in the choral repertoire. The concert also includes Gabriel Fauré's Cantique de Jean Racine and Edward Elgar's Lux aeterna, an eight-part setting of Nimrod from his Enigma Variations.
The concert, which we are performing with the Thame Sinfonia and professional soloists, is on Saturday, 11th May 2019 at 7.30 pm.
Tickets are £15 at the door for adults with under 16s free, but you can purchase advance tickets after Easter at £13 from our usual agents - Tickety Brew, 4 Banks Parade, Banks Road, Haddenham HP17 8ED and A Piece of Cake, 18-20 Upper High Street, Thame OX9 3EX - and also from members of the choir.
