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 (see photo below).
