Fundraising  - Do you shop at the Co-Op?Can you please help us?

Seaton Choral Society is one of the two charities this year, up until October, to benefit from the Co-Op's local community fund. If you shop at either of the Seaton CoOps and would like to support us at no extra cost to you then follow this link to register:  https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/15584/ All that's required is that you have a Co-Op member's card, but if you don't it's not too late to get one!

This has now expired for the Choral Society - we do appreciate the fantastic amount of funding we received as a result of this scheme. Thank you Co-op and all those of you that contributed by nominating us or buying bags there.

History of the Choral Society

When All Hallows School closed in 1998, together with the choral society associated with it, a small group reformed with the late Sue Cloke as Chairman and organiser of the society.

A little over one year later, the newly formed Seaton Choral Society performed its first Concert, Mendelssohn's great oratorio "Elijah", on the 12th June 1999, at the Seaton Methodist Church, under the baton of Leslie Baker, who served the Society as Musical Director until his retirement in 2011.

The Society was then currently under the enthusiatic baton of Dr Peter Milmer until December 2016 who has given up the task due to other commitments.

From January 2017 until May 2018 we welcomed Ian Crew as Musical Director.

From September 2018 Leslie Baker is going to pick up the Baton again .It is our aim to continue the series of excellent concerts which have been its hallmark since its formation.

 

The ethos of a Choral Society is to learn and sing the the major choral works ( and shorter pieces) that have been composed over the centuries, so that the pleasure of both performing and hearing them live, locally, is preserved.

 

 

Funding

We are a self-funding society relying mainly on the ticket sales from our concerts and our Membership Subscriptions, We have fortunante in 2018 to have received some funding to allow us to promote the Society more from the Co-Op and Aviva.

Occasional concerts are organised with vistiting musicians which have included our President Crispian Steele-Perkins, However we are always open to suggestions for fundraising!.

 

The Society is a Member of Making Music.

 

We meet at: Seaton Methodist Church Scalwell Lane, Seaton EX12 2ST
