The Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society has been giving choral and orchestral concerts in and around Royal Tunbridge Wells since the founding of the choir in 1904. We stage two or three concerts of music from the classical choral repertoire each year under a professional conductor. Major works with up to 150 mostly amateur singers are performed in the Tunbridge Wells Assembly Hall Theatre (adjacent the Town Hall) accompanied by the society's own orchestra. The choir also gives more informal concerts in local churches with instrumental ensembles and organ.
About the Choir
Rehearsals are normally held in St John's Church Hall, Tunbridge Wells, every Monday, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm in season.
They are conducted by our inspirational Director of Music Rebecca Miller.
There are normally about 12 rehearsals for each concert, and plenty of opportunity to learn notes!

The RTWCS is a vibrant community of people from all walks of life who share a passion for classical, mixed voice choral singing. We welcome everyone that shares our love of singing and wishes to listen to, learn about or perform beautiful live music. Our aim is to engage and inspire both members and audiences alike through public performances. As a self-governing society, we enjoy the support of our own orchestra, and the freedom to achieve our aims through evolution, adaptation and innovation.
