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?

The choir were strong: committed and passionate, and the orchestra played with gusto. It was a real pleasure to work with Janet too: she did magnificently.

Ben Thapa
Tenor Soloist - Verdi Requiem

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the concert and how brilliantly the Choral Society came across - it was a wonderful occasion and you should all be very proud… we were!

Angela Reed & T Reed & Son
Programme Advertisers - Verdi Requiem

I thoroughly enjoyed singing in the hall and thought the choir and orchestra both rose magnificently to the occasion - we did Verdi proud!

Gaynor Keeble
Mezzo-soprano Soloist - Verdi Requiem

What a great night it was!  One thing I can say straight away: Saffron Walden’s got a concert hall with excellent accoustics!

Ann-Helen Moen
Soprano Soloist - Verdi Requiem

"What a pleasure it was to take part in SWCS's performance of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius. Janet did an amazing job and I've never heard the choir sing so well. It was a hugely emotional and moving evening that I'll remember for a long time to come."
