Singing from the heart of Lancashire since 1927  

Welcome to the Cecilians!

Preston Cecilian Choral Society is a professionally-led amateur choir performing several concerts a year in venues in and around the city of Preston. Our repertoire ranges from choral society favourites such as Messiah to lighter arrangements of jazz standards and folk songs, and everything in between!

March 2014: we are sad to announce that for reasons of ill health our current Musical Director, Marco Fanti, will be stepping down from the post after this summer’s concert, after four inspiring seasons.

We are currently accepting applications for a new Musical Director from next season: for full details please click here.
