Horncastle & District Choral Society

We aim to perform at least two choral concerts per year.

Uniting a community through song.

What’s coming up in 2019…

A warm welcome to Horncastle & District Choral Society website.



Looking to build on the success of our recent concerts, the choir invites new singers (particularly basses) to come and join us for the new season. Our Christmas concert is on Saturday December 7th. We are very much looking forward to working with Crauford Thomson, our newly appointed music director.

A Fond Farewell

It was with mixed emotions that the choir performed its May concert last weekend.

The excitement and delight of presenting a well-rehearsed programme was overshadowed by the knowledge that this would be our last under the direction of Caroline Boden.

Caroline has given of herself over her five years with us.

Her thorough preparation for rehearsals has been evident, and her talent for getting the best out of us, with unfailing dedication, dynamism and good humour very much appreciated.

Caroline, we thank you wholeheartedly, and will miss you.

We are very pleased that he continues to sing with us!
