Abingdon & District Musical Society

Make music with us

The choir has about 70 singers. We don’t audition but ask you to just come along and see how you fit in. You do not need to read music. We are accompanied by John Oxlade who is one of, if not the, best accompanist in the area. Rehearals are on Thursday evenings


The orchestra has around 40 regular members with strong strings and wind sections. We bring additional players where needed for concerts. We have an excellent leader, local musician Kate Bailey. Orchestral players are auditioned by a trial period in the orchestra. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings


We perform two concerts with mixed choral and orchestral works, an orchestral concert, a choral concert and a light hearted charity Christmas concert.


If you are interested in joining the choir please call Debbie Clarke on 01235 533714 or choir@adms.org.uk.
