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 was under the direction of Miriam Newton, who was appointed in May 2010, until December 2019. Recent concerts have included performances of: Brahms Requiem, Vaughan Williams ‘A Sea Symphony’, Bach Mass in B minor, Mozart Requiem, Goodall Requiem ‘Eternal Light’ and Haydn The Creation.
