St Botolph’s Music Society


Copyright © St Botolphs Music Society (SBMS) 2016



Formed in 1966, the society is unusual in that membership consists of both a Choir and an Orchestra.

We rehearse and perform in the church.

Membership is amateur and is as open as possible, drawing on a wide area in North-East Essex.

New members are always welcome, subject to availability of places.  Subscriptions are kept as low as possible and there is no obligation for singers to purchase music.

The Choir rehearses on Fridays leading up to one or two concerts a year with the Orchestra.

The Orchestra rehearses on Thursdays and performs an attractive variety of works with excellent soloists including pianists of international repute.

Applications for membership are welcomed.  Please contact
