The Society employs a Musical Director who advises on the choice of works to be sung, leads rehearsals, engages soloists and instrumentalists and conducts performances. The present Musical Director is David Bednall.

Our reheasal accompanist is David Whitehead who is also our Deputy Conductor and occasionally takes rehearsals.

The Society's programme is decided by the Committee with advice from the Musical Director and we try to perform a well-balanced and varied programme. Past performances have ranged from the eighteenth and nineteenth century choral repertoire (e.g. Bach's St. John Passion, Handel's Messiah, Mendelssohn's Elijah and the Requiems by Verdi and Brahms) to the more modern (for example: Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, the Gloria by Rutter and several works by Benjamin Britten) via more operatic works such as Gilbert and Sullivan, choruses from Bizet's Carmen, and Purcall's Dido and Aeneas.

Chew Valley Choral Society is a Registered Charity (no. 1126339) and is affiliated to Making Music
