The Ceramic City Choir

Anthony Rose Chorus Master 
Ian Riddle Rehearsal Accompanist

Founded in 1942 under the conductorship of Sir Malcolm Sargent and with over 120 members, we specialise in performing major choral works with renowned professional orchestras and top vocal soloists. Distinguished guest conductors over the last 20 years have included Sir Charles Groves, Sir Edward Heath, Owain Arwel Hughes, Donald Hunt, Richard Hickox, Ian Tracey and Sir David Willcocks.

Directed by Anthony Rose, the Ceramic City Choir is Staffordshire's largest Choral Society performing in the superb Victoria Hall (Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent) and the surrounding area.  It performs the standard choral repertoire of oratorios and symphonic works regularly throughout Staffordshire and beyond, but also enjoys performing more challenging smaller-scale contemporary music.
