Robin Gregory reviews our Spring concert
“Jozik Kotz ... has been Musical Director of Hailsham Choral Society for more than a decade. His choir is, by now, undoubtedly one of the finest in this area; and a double-dose of Handel at All Saints Church on March 25th certainly bore out this judgment.”

Hailsham Festival. Saturday 16th September 2017
Before that, we'll be taking part in the Mayor's Concert as part of Hailsham Festival on the afternoon of Saturday 16th September, along with other local performers. More details here.
This is a free concert with a retiring collection to help support the Hailsham Festival of Arts and Culture.
We are a choir of about 65 singers based in Hailsham, East Sussex.
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.
Our 56th Year !!!
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 56th year and still going from strength to strength.
We would like to acknowledge the generous support of Hailsham Town Council who have assisted us with a Grant.
We would also like to thank the Co-op Local Community Fund for their support which is much appreciated.
