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. Please click in the panel to the right to find out about our Next Concert.
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.

Here is a video of the choir in rehearsal for the 2016 Shakespeare summer concert, with an introduction from Julia Woodthorpe, Chairman of Lincoln Choral Society.


The next LCS concert is a celebration of the Baroque. The works being performed are J. S. Bach's Magnificat and Wachet Auf, along with Telemann's Overture TWV55 D18, performed by Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra. For more information please click on the 'Next Concert' panel to the right.

Gainsborough Choral Society have a concert on Saturday 12th November in All Saint's Church, Gainsborough. It is named 'Gloria' and settings by Bach, Chilcott, Rutter and Vivaldi are being performed. If you are interested please click on the link to their website (bottom right of this page) for information about tickets.

Also on 12th November is a concert by Lincoln Cathedral Consort in the cathedral Chapter House. It is named 'Sing Joyfully' and features works by Pärt, Byrd and Monteverdi. It's at lunchtime, so you don't have to miss the Gainsborough concert -you can go to both! There is an information poster here.
