Abingdon & District Musical Society

Rehearsal schedules

All rehearsals except those on the day of a concert are held at the Manor Prep School, Faringdon Road, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX13 6LN (map) from 7:30 to 9:30 pm.

Christmas Charity Concert Saturday Dec 16th

7.30pm at Trinity Church, Conduit Road, Abingdon


As last year, Carswell Primary School (on the other side of Conduit Road from the church) have agreed for us to use their two car parks on the afternoon and in the evening, although not the playground for H&S reasons. The first car park is through the iron-grey metal gate on Conduit Road. The second is at the western end of the school, half way down Bostock Road. They each hold about a dozen cars. Please take care as both have restricted entrances. Otherwise, there is street parking or the The Charter multi-storey car park on Broad Street. Avoid parking on the private roads, Park   Road and Park   Crescent, as this is for residents only.

Afternoon rehearsal

3.30pm 3.00pm Bach suite

3.50 choir and orchestra

Solo choral works at end

Please bring your own music stand

Dress for concert: Basic as usual but with a hint of colour and sparkle. So colourful bow ties for men and sequins, tinsel etc for women


Appeal for mincepies: The choir and orchestra will be providing these for the audience, choir and orchestra to eat after the concert. Please could you bring some to the rehearsal on Sat afternoon? If we each bring half a dozen there will be more than enough.
