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

Autumn 2017: After our summer break, we will begin rehearsing for a concert on 25th November which will include excerpts from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, the delightful Mass in Bb by Hummel, and Stanford’s The Revenge, from Tennyson's poem. Tickets will be on sale from the beginning of October.

Our May concert with Mendelssohn's As the Hart Pants, Vaughan Williams’s In Windsor Forest and Mozart’s Requiem, was a triumph - an electrifying performance which left the capacity audience spellbound.

Other recent performances have included Haydn's Heilig Mass, Stanford's Songs of the Fleet and Kelly's Missa Brevis, Schubert's Magnificat, Vaughan Williams's Fantasia on Christmas Carols and an enchanting Mass by Carl Maria von Weber; his JubelMesse No.2 in G major.

We have performed Mendelssohn’s Elijah at the Lighthouse, Poole with the Dorset Guild of Singers, as well as Gounod’s St Cecilia Mass, MacDowall’s Christus Natus Est, 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 and Mozart’s Te Deum.

As well as our concerts, we also host occasional choral workshops and 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.
