Here at Solihull Choral Society we draw our singers from the West Midlands, South Birmingham, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and further afield and we’d love you to join us. We are the only Solihull choir to perform four demanding concerts a year so members need to be relatively able and prepared to do preparation outside of our weekly rehearsal time. We are committed to high quality performance and love singing varied and challenging choral works.
We are friendly and welcoming and generally, though not exclusively, experienced musicians meaning that we can put on four concerts a year to a high standard. We love to support our less experienced members to grow in confidence and skill and share in our great sense of musical achievement. Our repertoire ranges from the great works of Monteverdi, Bach and Handel to the C20th masters of Bernstein, Britten and Finzi.
We enjoy an active social “buzz” with members becoming good friends and sharing a strong sense of belonging. Rehearsals include time for socialising as well as concentration upon singing and we have social events during the year too.

- are free on Wednesday evenings
Come and join us to see for yourself
Singing is good for you and singing well feels great!
The health benefits of singing are both physical and psychological. Singing has physical benefits because it is an aerobic activity that increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscle groups in the upper body, even when sitting. Singing has psychological benefits because of its normally positive effect in reducing stress levels through the action of the endocrine system which is linked to our sense of emotional well-being. Psychological benefits are also evident when people sing together as well as alone because of the increased sense of community, belonging and shared endeavour.
