Meeting times

Middleton Musical Society was founded in 1772, since when its choir has performed on countless occasions to the delight of thousands of members of audiences drawn from the town itself and its neighbouring localities.

Rehearsal.  The choir meets to rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in St. Stephen's Church, High Street (off Cheapside), Middleton.  

New members are always welcome in all the sections. There are no auditions, but it is expected that all singers will be seeking to enhance the performance of the choir as a whole, as well as find satisfaction in their own development as musicians.

Repertory. From madrigals to musicals, cantatas to chamber operas - the range of music to be experienced by a MMS singer is quite extensive, and includes music written specially for them.

Further information can be obtained from the Musical Director or one of the committee members.
