The Malmesbury Singers is well known locally for its many wonderful performances in Malmesbury Abbey and very occasionally in other local churches and venues.
Monday 6 September 2021 – 7.30pm
Malmesbury Singers are delighted to announce the start of rehearsals this coming Autumn term, as we find our voices again in readiness for our Christmas Concert, a performance of Handel’s Messiah.
Monday night rehearsals start on 6 September 2021 in Malmesbury Abbey at our usual time of 7.30pm to 9.15pm.
If you have not sung with Malmesbury Singers for a while and would like to re-join, or if you are new to the choir and would like to find out more, please head to our Contact Page to get in touch. New members are always welcome in all voices, soprano, alto, tenor or bass.
Rehearsing such an uplifting and well-loved work as Handel’s Messiah as well as finally singing together again will be something very special.
We can’t wait to start – so come and join us!

The Malmesbury had a mention in the early 2019 May edition of the Wiltshire & Gloucestershire Standard, which we were pleased to see, with our choirmaster Iain Duffin achieving a lifetime ambition of his! You can read it here.
We are a friendly mixed choir, and the choir has been performing in Malmesbury since 1961. We are privileged to rehearse and give concerts in Malmesbury Abbey, an inspiring building steeped in the history of England and Wessex.
We normally rehearse every Monday evening during term time (Spring and Autumn terms) from 7.30pm – 9.15pm in Malmesbury Abbey. We sing a wide variety of choral music to suit all tastes and perform regularly with full orchestra and professional soloists.
Our last event for 2019 was our Autumn Concert, “Peace on Earth”. You can find out more by clicking this link.
If you would like to consider joining us, please use the contact link above to get in touch. We offer a 50% discount on subscriptions for members under the age of 25.
During summer 2019, we had a reduced choir and held a series of four “singing evenings” to keep us from getting rusty! It’s often an ideal time to come along and try us out.
In September 2018 we hosted a workshop singing day with the talented Nigel Perrin. Do check out our “Events” as new things are added from time to time, or our Facebook page. If you have a workshop or a concert coming up in the area, please contact us if you would like to invite the Malmesbury Singers along!
New members are welcome in all voices, (see a link to our news page above) so please use the contact page to get in touch!
