Welcome to Lincoln Choral Society
Lincoln Choral Society is a 100-strong mixed choir. We are Lincoln's largest choral group and our aim is to give our audiences a wonderful musical experience, drawing on local, national and international musical talents, all in the magnificent setting of Lincoln Cathedral.
Our concert programmes are designed to appeal to all those who love the fabulous choral music of Verdi, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Rossini, Karl Jenkins and so many more. We are fortunate indeed to have Neville Turner as our Musical Director, a musician of renown throughout the north of England and beyond.
