Welcome To Portsmouth Choral Union

The Portsmouth Choral Union was founded in 1880 as the Portsmouth Temperance Choral Union. The choir is now one of the leading large amateur choruses in the south of England.

The musical direction of distinguished conductor David Gostick has extended the repertoire to cover most of the established choral masterpieces and a range of contemporary works. These include new commissions by the PCU, such as Ian Schofield's Te Deum (2000). He took up his position as Musical Director in 2012.

The PCU frequently sings with the highly acclaimed professional orchestra, Southern Pro Musica, though performances have also been given with the Bournemouth Symphony and Guildford Philharmonic Orchestras and, in a particularly happy and productive relationship with the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra.
