Hadleigh Choral Society

President: John Lill CBE



Hadleigh Choral Society has two major concerts each year. The first is in the autumn (end of November). The second major concert is presented usually just before Easter. Both concerts feature a varied programme of music chosen by the choir’s Director of Music, conductor Christopher Phelps, and the Music Committee.

The 100-strong choir is accompanied by the Colchester Symphony Orchestra which provides orchestral items in addition to the choral works performed. They are joined by professional soloists and rehearsal accompanist John Cooper who plays organ, harpsichord and piano as required by the programme.

Concerts are held in Hadleigh’s St Mary’s Church where there is seating for about 250 people.

The range of concert material performed since Christopher Phelps took the baton in 1991 is amazingly varied and a full history of the Society’s concerts can be found by going to the Previous Concerts page.
