Welcome to the Halstead & District Choral Society

Halstead Choral Society is one of the oldest non-audition musical societies in Essex with records going back 75 years. The Choral Society has a reputation for presenting concerts of a wide and varied content to a high standard of musical performance. In 2007 we celebrated 50 years as Halstead and District Choral Society although records went back at least another 25 years under different names. Led by Musical Director, Philip Prior, the choral society sings a variety of music and we hold 4 concerts a year including a Carol Concert at Christmas.

New members are always welcome!
