Welcome to the MKCS Website

Mount Kelly Choral Society will be presenting one of Mozart's choral masterpieces, the Great Mass in C minor on Saturday, 17th March 2018, 7.30 at St. Eustachius’ Church, Tavistock.

Along with his famous Requiem this grand work was left unfinished at Mozart's death and has been completed by German musicologist Alois Schmitt. This is one of his most complex works featuring choruses in five and eight parts as well as some very operatic arias and ensembles for the soloists.

The Choral Society will be supported by a professional orchestra and soloists Bianca Phillips and Kate Walker - (both soprano) and Andrew Farris (baritone) with Bryan Dadson (tenor).

Wine will be available in the interval.

Tickets £10 or free to under 18s, Available from Book Stop, the Reception at Mount Kelly College, on the door or online at Eventbrite.com

We are a mixed choir always welcoming newcomers.  We sing a wide variety of choral works and perform two or three concerts a year.   Although aspiring to high standards, anyone who wishes to develop their singing abilities is welcome. Auditions are usually only required if the section for the voice concerned is oversubscribed.   The choir is very friendly, reasonably serious but NOT SOLEMN!     You can attend up to six rehearsals on a trial basis, without obligation.

Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 in the Melvin Hall at Mount Kelly College and the first one of the new term will be on Thursday, September 7th, when  work will start on Handel’s Ode on St. Cecelia’s Day and Rutter’s Magnificat for the concert on Saturday, 18th November in St. Eustachius’ Church, Tavistock..   After Christmas, we will be rehearsing Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor  for a concert on March 17th. also in St. Eustachius’ Church.   Annual subscriptions are £50 full subscription,  £40 concessionary and £25 for under 30s. Membership is free to anyone under 18.

Here on our choir website we hope not only to keep members up to date on all things Mount Kelly Choral, but also to give you a feel for our group if you're thinking about joining, and to inform about upcoming concerts if you're looking forward to hearing us sing.

Mount Kelly Choral Society is a mixed amateur choir with around 65 members coming from Tavistock and its surrounding area.
We sing for the enjoyment of rehearsing and performing major choral works, drawn from a large mainstream classical and contemporary repertoire.

2016 was our 40th anniversary year, and you'll find a brief history of the choir's progress and achievements on the History page.

We hope that you enjoy your visit, and that you like what you see so far.
Our aim is that the MKCS website should progress and develop through your interest, input and feedback. So don't hold back - jump in and let us know your thoughts and feelings... and see you at rehearsals!
