The Choral Group will start rehearsals for a Christmas programme of carols on Monday 26 September, 6:30-8:00 pm at GAOS HQ, and would be delighted if you would like to join us!
Our director will be Lorna Donkin (Musical Director, The Wind in the Willows) accompanied by Rebecca McDonald. The Christmas evening will take place on Wednesday 14 December 2022 (with dress on Tuesday 13 December) in the Salle Communale de Founex.
Please email email@example.com if you wish to sing with the Group this autumn, and mention the voice you will sing (SATB) - we need to know numbers in order to prepare the music in sufficient copies. You will be very welcome!
Who are we?
The Choral Group is made up of GAOS members who love to sing. Some members use the opportunity to "keep in voice" in between shows, while others simply like the chance to sing without the demands of a mainstage production.
Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings 18h30-20h30 at GAOS HQ.
The Choral Group performs 3 concerts per year, including the annual Christmas Carol Concert. They’ve performed everything from Tallis to Mozart, Brahms to Bernstein, Rutter and the list goes on. Their most recent performances have included Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, Duruflé’s Requiem and excerpts from Handel’s Belshazzar.
The Choral Group season often includes a weekend workshop with invited clinicians, as well.

The Choral Group was founded in 1985 with just 16 singers and has performed in numerous locations around Geneva, including Victoria Hall, the Château de Prangins, the Auditoire du Calvin and even at Geneva’s Fête de la Musique! The group has often combined forces with other local choirs and orchestras, and in 2008 traveled to Durham, UK to combine with the Durham Choral Society Chorus and Orchestra for a concert of Mozart’s Requiem and Vesperae solennes de Confessore.
