Brockenhurst Choir is a lively amateur mixed choir of over 80 voices, which meets regularly each week on a Tuesday evening, to rehearse for two annual concerts in May and December. Professional soloists and orchestra join with the choir for performances.
The choir was formed in 1964. Since then there have been four chief conductors, and the choir is now under the direction of Miriam Newton, who was appointed in May 2010. Recent concerts have included performances of: A Sea Symphony, Bach Mass in B minor, Mozart Requiem, Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle, Haydn The Creation and Goodall Requiem ‘Eternal Light’.
