Welcome to the Isle of Man Choral Society
The Isle of Man Choral Society is a community choir that, in conjunction with the Isle of Man Symphony Orchestra, performs one or more major works each year at its annual spring concert in the Villa Marina, Douglas.
Supported by numerous members who are experienced singers and musicians, IOMCS is able to welcome and embrace all who wish to come and experience the joy of choral singing and the thrill of performing with a full symphony orchestra.
Regular attendance at rehearsals which began on 14th September 2017 (see the rehearsal schedule here) are vital, to enable the choir to perform at its best.
Our next concert will be held at The Royal Hall, Villa Marina, Douglas on 25th March 2018 commencing at 3.00pm. Tickets are now available from the Villa Marina, Douglas Box Office.
Isle of Man Choral Society accepted an invitation from Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) to sing with others in a world premiere of a new work – “Sing! The Music was Given” composed by Sir Karl Jenkins CBE who was in attendance. The concert was held, as in past years, on the Monday following the Martin Luther King Jnr weekend – 15th January 2018 in the Carnegie Hall, New York, USA. The choir of approximately 250 consisting of invited singers from several countries was under the baton of Dr Jonathan Griffith – Artistic Director and Conductor DCINY.
Each year the Society chooses a local charity to support from the ticket sales at the Spring Concert.
