Welcome to the Sherborne Festival Chorus Web Site.

We are a non-auditioning community-based choir of 140 people, formed in 2006, in collaboration with Sherborne Abbey Festival, to enable and to encourage local people to sing to a high standard within an informal environment. We aim to provide more local people with the opportunity to perform in Sherborne Abbey and to involve members of the community in Sherborne Abbey Festival.

Sadly our 2020 concert has been cancelled in light of the ongoing coronavirus situation. However, we look forward to performing Elgar’s The Kingdom on Monday 3 May 2021.
