Oldham Choral Society, with nearly 150 members, is one of the leading amateur choirs in North West England. The repertoire includes most of the major choral works by Bach, Elgar, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Rossini and many others. The society organises about 4 concerts a year in Oldham, elsewhere in Manchester and further afield.
Membership is open to anyone who wants to sing; we do not hold auditions. Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings at 7:20 pm in the main hall at the back of the first floor of Chadderton Town Hall, Middleton Rd, Chadderton OL9 6PP .

Just prior to this, on Sunday 15th December at 6:30 pm in Greeancres Congregational Church, members of the choir will perform a memorial concert for Joyce Ogden, who was the Society’s Secretary for over 30 years. The programme will comprise most of the choruses from Handel’s “Messiah”, linked by a narrative.
