Ellesmere College Choral Society


Do you enjoy singing? Would you like to be part of an established choral society? Whatever your age or experience you are sure to feel welcome at Ellesmere College Choral Society.

Ellesmere College Choral Society is a choir with about 50 singers who enjoy performing a mixed repertoire from choral classics to popular music and was founded in 1889 by T.C. Whittle, Music Master.

We are conducted and directed by Anthony Coupe, who is the Director of Music at Ellesmere College, and comes from a cathedral choral tradition. Rehearsals are accompanied by Pat Wood.

We are involved in fundraising through our concerts with charities that include:

  • Age UK (North Shropshire Supporters Association)
  • Hope House
  • St Mary's Church, Ellesmere
  • Poppy Appeal.

Being part of the choir means being part of something much bigger as we work in partnership with several ensembles including the Ellesmere Sinfonia (community orchestra) Oswestry Sinfonia, and the Porthwaen Silver Band.

We rehearse between 7.30pm and 9.00pm on Monday evening in the Chapel at Ellesmere College.
