Amesbury Town Council has awarded us a £250 grant to help our development as a new choir for singers in the Avon valley area from Amesbury, Shrewton and the Woodfords to Netheravon and beyond.

AVCS is keen to welcome new singers, particularly from the many newcomers who are expected to arrive in the community in the next few months and, eventually, to become a registered charity, supporting local events and raising funds for good causes.

We are very happy to encourage inexperienced singers – several of our Members have not sung in a choir before joining Avon Valley Choral Society – and we offer plenty of musical support from existing Members, our inspirational Musical Director, Simon Irwin, and our experienced accompanist, Ann Atkins. We are a friendly group who enjoy music and want to sing the popular choral works from Bach to Vivaldi. All voice parts are welcome. There are no auditions and the ability to read music is great but not compulsory. We meet on Thursday evenings at 7.30 pm at Amesbury Methodist Church. Please come and join us. You will be very welcome.”
