What People Say

Praised often for our versatility and musicality, SWCS are always happy to hear from members of the audience, whether in Saffron Hall after a concert or on social media - sometimes not even before the end! The professional soloists who sing with us, equally, let us know how we do - why not read some of their comments below?

“It was great to see a full house and both the choir and the orchestra gave accomplished performances”

Nicholas Merryweather
Christ – St Matthew Passion

“The SWCS Carmina Burana was a most enjoyable concert of the highest standard of music making. The orchestra, hall and especially the choral society made it a fantastic evening of music and theatre.”

Alexander Robin Baker
Baritone Soloist – Carmina Burana

“The scale of both this work is not to be underestimated and I thought you all pulled it off with aplomb!  It was also a real treat to sing in such a gorgeous new venue.”

Jeni Bern
Soprano Soloist – Carmina Burana

“It has been wonderful to work with Saffron Walden Choral Society. Great choir and a fabulous performance of Mass in Blue with excellent direction from Janet Wheeler. A very warm welcome and a most enjoyable collaboration.”

Will Todd
Composer – Mass in Blue

“I was bowled over by the venue, which is a wonderful space to perform in, and thrilled by the sound of the choir. Saffron Walden Choral Society is clearly a force to be reckoned with! They performed the Bach with style and elan, and brought out the drama of Dixit Dominus wonderfully well.”

Samuel Evans
Bass Soloist – Bach Magnificat – Handel Dixit Dominus
