The Luton Choral Society, started from an idea in 1866, was eventually founded in 1870, giving its first performance in 1871. Photographs and a brief historical account of the Society's eight former conductors are reproduced from archive materials.

Today, the Society has over 60 members, mostly drawn from Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, performing works from both the traditional repertoire and also from more contemporary composers.

The Luton Choral Society is registered by the Charity Commissioners (Reg. No. 290450) and is affiliated to Making Music Eastern Region which represents, supports and promotes amateur vocal and instrumental groups and music clubs throughout the United Kingdom.

Luton Choral Society welcomes new members.
