BCOS is a performing musical society with a difference: we rehearse and present works from both the choral and operatic disciplines, usually performing a major choral work in the spring and a staged musical production in the late autumn, both with orchestra.
Woodstock Music Society (WMS) was formed in 1975 to provide an outlet for the talents of local amateur musicians. It has grown from strength to strength & now comprises a mixed voice choir of about ninety singers, with its own string orchestra.
The Society endeavours to put on 4 productions a year covering a wide range: family shows, thrillers, period drama and comedy - check our `Previous Productions' for a full list. We have recently taken to entering the local Oxford Drama Network annual festival.
Originally brought together to play when an orchestra was needed for leading chamber choir Akeman Voices. The orchestra quickly developed a reputation for presenting high quality music and has found itself increasingly in demand.
The Bicester Concert Band practices at St Edburg's Church Hall (Nr. Bicester Library) at 7.45 pm every Tuesday evening during school term time so if you're a player and you want to take up a challenging position in the Bicester Concert Band come along.
