Founded in 1875, the Reading Choral Society has a long and proud tradition of presenting vocal music, particularly symphonic masterworks, but also exploring and interpreting other music genres. Under its current music director, Graham Bier (the twelfth person to hold this position), the Reading Choral Society continues to evolve and change. Its educational programs now encompass regular performances with invited local high school and college choirs, community engagement programs, awards and scholarships for high school and college students.
While continuing the tradition of programming master choral works, the Society has expanded its repertory to include the more frequent performance and commissioning of new music and the exploration of more “popular” literature, like folksongs, spirituals, and musical theater.
The Reading Choral Society is comprised now, as it has always been, of dedicated semiprofessional singers from all walks of life with no minimum or maximum age. Determined to present the highest caliber musical performances possible, the Society rehearses weekly in a professional atmosphere, fulfilling the lives of its members by immersing them in great music, and through RCS performances enriching and enlivening the musical life of the greater Reading community.
