WCS was founded in 1983 for parents, staff and friends of Wycliffe College, an independent school in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.

swainOur Conductor is Christopher Swain, who founded the choir, and was Wycliffe’s Director of Music until his retirement in July 2008. At that stage the Choir became an independent Charity (Registration Number 1125945), although it still keeps strong connections with the College.

We rehearse in the college preparatory school performing arts centre, and give concerts either in the College Chapel, or in the nearby Sibly Hall. Concerts frequently include concertos by soloists from Wycliffe College pupils.

A number of social events are organised during the year, including concert visits, walks, dinners, and post-concert parties.




Wycliffe Choral Society is part of the South Cotswolds Big Sing Group.  To find out more, go to www.sccg.info


Next Concert

 Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our May Concert has been postponed.

We hope to perform Beethoven's Missa Solemnis in the autumn of 2020.

Rehearsals will re-commence on 8th September
