With well-documented connections to this lovely, double-cube, Grade 2 * Georgian ‘Chapelle on The Ings’, William Wordsworth is key to this concert. We feature words by him, music he might have heard, music inspired by him – several compositions being unique to SCS. He’d be 252 this year: that’s a birthday to celebrate! Come and join us!

Happy Birthday, Billy!
Wordsworth’s birthday celebrated in the summer gardens of his own lovely home. A carefully curated concert of connected music to be savoured in midsummer afternoon sun, surrounded by the landscape that William would have known so well. Tickets (£17.50) will include Prosecco and cakes – and a wonderful view of Rydal Water and the surrounding hills. Book through https://www.rydalmount.co.uk/ ..but not just yet: details to follow.
A Christmas compilation of carols punctuating a dramatic rendition of the eponymous poem by Carol Ann Duffy. If you’ve been to one of previous concerts under the baton of Wendy Randall you’ll know how these fun, festive, creative, thrilling occasions roll!
Wendy Randall is our current Musical Director, and David Battersby our Pianist.
Wendy’s background is in Art, Music and Education, so she is well qualified to teach music to all ages and put together diverse and interesting concerts.
David has more letters after his name than some alphabets, having studied in London with illustrious musicians such as Martino Tirimo. He rises to every challenge with ease and cheerfulness, accompanying sensitively, and performing as soloist with panache and élan. We love him!
"A local choir with strength in depth!"
I love Staveley Choral Society because you can see how beautiful music is.
I find that singers are only well trained in music these days.
