Tesco Carol Singing

December 14th, 2018

After our 2 Carol Concerts, we ended our year  by singing in the foyer of Tesco, Goole on Saturday 15th December at 10.30. This was a very relaxed occasion, and we  collected  £250 for the Dove House Hospice. (Thankyou the generous people of Goole)

We now start to prepare for our Major Easter concert, starting rehearsals on January 10th 2019, in the Methodist chapel in Snaith. We will be preparing the Mozart Requiem, Polovtsian Dances by Borodin, and the Miserere by Allegri. We will rehearse every Thursday (except Feb 7th) getting ready for our performance on Saturday, April 13th 2019. Come along to a rehearsal. You will be surprised how much you enjoy it.

All that remains is for the Members of Snaith and District Choral Society to wish you and your families a happy Christmas and a peaceful new year.

There will be a light supper and donations are more than welcome.

Wonderful Night in Snaith

March 26th, 2018

Saturday, 24th of March, was indeed a wonderful night for Snaith as the 2 soloists, 4 percussionists, 2 pianists and the Snaith and District Choral Society all combined to give a magical performance of Carmina Burana. It was enjoyed by all present.

Carmina Burana (Carl Orff) and Vaughan Williams 5 Mystical Songs

Preparations are well under way for our Easter Concert in Snaith Methodist Chapel on March 24th 2018 at 7.30 p.m. We have soloists Janna Leith and Philip Scard joining us as well as several percussionists to hopefully make a performance to remember. Tickets are only £10 including light refreshments and free entry to the raffle.


Snaith and District Choral Society are indebted to the Goole Wind Farm’s Fund, overseen by the East Riding Council, for their generous sponsorship of this concert.

Carol Singing raises £182 for Dove House

December 22nd, 2017

On Saturday morning (16th Dec), members of the choir sang their hearts out in Tesco Foyer in Goole for an hour (Thank you Tesco) raising £182 for Dove House Hospice. A lovely and most worthwhile way to end our year, and we thank everyone involved in helping us this year.

If you are thinking of joining us in 2018, come along to Wesley Place on Thursdays at 7.00pm. We are performing Carmina Burana at Easter, and you enjoy trying to get to grips with this wonderful piece of music.

Happy and peaceful new year to all.

Christmas Magic

December 15th, 2017

Both our Christmas concerts this year in Cowick Church and Drax Sports and Social Club were very well attended by an appreciative audience, who were treated to some wonderful music from the choir, Peter Sproston on the piano, Carolyn Storey, Pam Waddington-Muse and Dennis Hardy.

Our last performance of the year will be in the foyer of Tesco’s in Goole at 10.30 and 11.30 for half an hour each session. This is to raise money for “Dove House”, and we hope that you will come and support us, both by singing and making a donation.

Merry Christmas  and a Peaceful new year to all from everyone at Snaith and District Choral Society.
