Beaminster Singers formed after the cast of the 1987 Beaminster Community Play stayed together to sing. Since then, the choral society has become a feature of the town's musical life, giving two or three concerts a year in the town and surrounding villages.


Heavenly Harmonies - November 2013

In April 2014 we joined the Dorset Guild of Singers and Dorchester Choral Society in a combined performance of Mendelssohn's Elijah at the Lighthouse, Poole. Our next concert is not until the autumn but before then we have a Come and Sing Choral Workshop with Brahms' Requiem (11 October) Click here for further details and early registration.

On Thursday 29 May we will be singing Mozart's Spaurmesse in its liturgical setting during an evening Mass at the Catholic Church in Bridport. On the following Sunday, 1 June at 6pm we will be in St Mary's Beaminster to sign the same mass during a Choral Eucharist.

Recent performances have included Gounod's St Cecilia Mass, Bax's Of a Rose I Sing, Alessandro Scarlatti's Dixit Dominus and Mozart's Loreto Mass, Bach's Magnificat and St John Passion, Haydn's Creation, Brahms Requiem, Vaughan Williams's Mass in G, Bach's Wachet Auf, Vivaldi's Beatus Vir and Mozart's Te Deum. In 2008 we marked our 20th anniversary with a concert featuring Mozart's Requiem.

We also perform in local festivals, at fund raising concerts, dinners and ceremonial occasions. We are available for private bookings at weddings and memorial services, where we can advise on the choice of music and arrange soloists as well as singing hymns and anthems.
