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 March 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.
On Sunday 20 March 2016, IOMCS with IOMSO will be performing John Rutter’s Requiem and Puccini’s Messa di Gloria in the Royal Hall of the Villa Marina, the only venue able to accommodate our nearly 200 performers. Further information about these exciting works can be found here.
Regular attendance at rehearsals which begin on 10 September 2015 (see schedule) is vital, to enable the choir to perform at its best.
Each year the Society chooses a local charity to support from the ticket sales at the Spring Concert. This year the supported charity will be Beach Buddies, a registered beach-cleaning charity run by volunteers with the aim of achieving for the Isle of Man the status of cleanest beaches in Britain.
