Arnside Choral Society is a mixed-voice choir based near the southern tip of the Lake District with an ever-expanding membership of over 70.
Under its dynamic and energetic conductor, Ian Allan, the choir gives two regular concerts, usually at Christmas and in the Summer, and also takes part in the Mary Wakefield Festival in Kendal. In addition, rehearsals are taken by the Musical Director, Tracie Penwarden, who is not only one of the region's leading sopranos but a superb choir trainer to boot. With the addition of David Edmonds as their accompanist, Arnside Choral Society benefits from the expertise of three professionals, each with different specialisms.
Rehearsals take place at Arnside's WI Hall in Orchard Road on Tuesdays at 7.30 and we offer a very warm welcome to anybody wishing to join us in singing a variety of styles. No audition necessary but a team spirit, an abundance of enthusiasm, a sense of humour and the ability to sing in tune would be very beneficial. To join us all you have to do is turn up to any rehearsal or concert or look out for our open evening which takes place every September.
Finally, to find out what we will be rehearsing and performing in the future please take a look at our Diary Page.
We look forward to seeing you!
