Oldham Choral Society, with more than 80 members, is one of the leading amateur choirs in North West England. Our Musical Director is David Cane and our regular piano accompanist is Duncan Robertson. The repertoire includes most of the major choral works by Bach, Elgar, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Rossini and many others.
