Handel's Samson: Now cancelled
Because of the continuing uncertainty over Corona virus we have now cancelled future concerts until further notice. This means that our performance of Handel's Samson, which was originally due to take place in March 2020 and then rescheduled for September 2020, has now been cancelled. We are very sorry for any disappointment this may cause. We would like to thank our soloists, orchestra, accompanist and musical director for all their hard work preparing for the concert.
If you have already bought a ticket, please return it to the person/place you bought it from for a refund.
In the meantime, stay safe and keep well.

Robin Gregory reviews our Autumn concert
Rachel’s Pie Jesu seemed to float heavenwards, and Jozik’s Libera Me perfectly prepared us for the closing In Paradisum: “eternal rest” indeed, and totally matching Fauré’s setting. The chorus was impeccable.
We are a choir of about 60 singers based in Hailsham, East Sussex.
You can find references to a choral group in Hailsham from the early 1930s, but it faded from view during the war - they probably had even more troubles recruiting tenors and basses then! The present Society was founded in 1961, so we are now in our 59th year and still going from strength to strength.
We perform at least four main concerts during the year, with programmes featuring anything from Bach (Christmas Oratorio, St. John Passion) to Beatles, Rossini (Petite Messe Solennelle) to Gershwin, Rutter (Requiem, Magnificat, carols) to Rogers and Hart.
We’re a sociable lot too, music workshops, coffee mornings, quizzes, even the odd pint of beer or glass of wine (or two)!
If you’re looking for a fast way to increase your circle of friends, as well as an opportunity to sing hugely enjoyable music go to the ‘Join Us’ page.
