Local Music

Information on local music events that may be of interest to our members or supporters. If you would like to add an event to this page then please let us know.

Because of the current situation there are few live in-person events but there are a number of on-line ones. 

  • A concert from the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, by Oxford Bach Choir will be live streamed THIS SUNDAY, 19th September at 7pm.  The link to the performance is now live at www.oxfordbachchoir.org or you can click directly onto https://www.positivenote.co.uk/oxford-bach-choir. The concert includes: Gabriel Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine and Maurice Duruflé’s, Requiem.

  • Our secretary, Gloria Whitaker, has been singing with the Self-Isolation Choir since March 2020. She has given us a link to the SIC as well as a flavour of her experience Gloria and the SIC.

  • The choir at St Bartholomew’s in Lower Basildon (Maureen is a member) created a virtual recording of Lully, Lulla, Lullay by Stopford.
  • Covent Garden (Royal Opera House) has been streaming a number of events – some are free!
  • Some of our members have been singing with the Self Isolation Choir which has recently launched a choral only on-line radio channel.
  • We have created a playlist of some of the live ‘singalong’ events happening on our YouTube channel. 
  • We also have been adding links via our Facebook page to various on-line concerts.

We have found a number of useful on-line sites for both advertising Pangbourne Choral Society and finding interesting music concerts etc.
