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.
