About our society


Maidenhead Choral Society started as the Christian Council Choir run by Len Piercey who was the organist and choirmaster at St Mary's Church, Maidenhead. In 1963, the choir was reformed from all the church choirs in Maidenhead to sing in a concert celebrating the opening of the town hall. Since then, our concert programmes have been varied and ambitious; from Handel's Messiah, Dvorak and Haydn, to Tippett and Vaughan Williams, and Johann Sebastian Bach.


Our patron is The Rt Hon Theresa May, Prime Minister and MP for Maidenhead.

We are also very grateful for the generous support of the Louis Baylis Trust, which is a charitable trust linked to our local newspaper, The Maidenhead Advertiser. We have recently received a further £500 from The Louis Baylis Trust.

Our musical director George Badacsonyi was born in Budapest, and studied at the academy of music there, and later in Vienna. He has worked regularly with the BBC Singers and Orchestra, and the Philharmonic Orchestra, and his conert engagements take him around the world.

Our other treasure is our talented accompanist, pianist Gillian Salmon, who is not only a delight to listen to, but also helps us enormously in learning our scores.
