The Nelson Choral Society has been entertaining Nelson residents for many years. We are a large non-audition choir that presents concerts twice a year, at Christmas and in the spring. We perform a wide variety of music both secular and sacred and welcome anyone who likes to sing to our ranks. We like to encourage and support other choirs in the area, inviting them to perform with us in our concerts, delighting our audiences with a variety of performances and styles, as well as providing an opportunity and venue for smaller choirs to display their repertoire. You can also find us on facebook
Welcome to our Spring 2023 session! After our well-received 'comeback concert' in December, we are looking forward to launching another regular session of the choir. As always, we will be ready to pivot if need be. Please join us, and spread the word to others.
We’ll be rehearsing on Wednesday evenings, 7pm - 9pm, in the Nelson United Church (602 Silica Street). Enter the church via the rear door — the one with the ramp leading up to it. The session begins on Wednesday January 18th, and the plan is to wrap up sometime in April with one concert (tentatively, an afternoon concert on Sunday April 23rd).
Kathleen Neudorf, our music director, says we’ll be revisiting the songs that were left unsung when the pandemic hit. Titles include - Sing My Child, All too Soon, We Rise Again, Garten Mother’s Lullaby, Seal Lullaby, Ballade to the Moon, Londonderry Air… and more!
