Croydon Philharmonic Choir 

The Croydon Philharmonic Choir is the largest and longest-established choir in Croydon. We have been singing for more than 100 years and perform four concerts each year. We have around 100 members who comprise four choral sections: soprano, alto, baritone and bass.  We have an extensive repertoire, ranging from classic choral pieces to contemporary music. (Find more about our history here.)


We have an inspirational music director, David Gibson, who challenges us to bring out the best in ourselves.   We have a strong reputation for staging great concerts and sending our audiences home buzzing with excitement.

We had a brilliant  concert on Saturday April 2 at the Fairfield Hall.  Our main piece was Carl Orff's thrilling Carmina Burana and we were delighted to be singing it at last, as this was part of the repertoire at our concert that was cancelled in March 2020 due to Covid.  We also sang the enchanting Rio Grande by Constant Lambert and the London Sinfonia excelled with their performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. We joined forces with the Basingstoke Choral Society for the occasion and also had guests from other local choirs. Among the audience was Croydon's mayor, Sherwan Choudhury, pictured above with Councillor Alisa Flemming and choir chair Jane Castle .  We are joining forces with CMVC for a concert at Croydon Minster on Saturday June 18.  This is sure to be a fun occasion!  

The photograph shows us singing at a concert at Fairfield Halls. We usually wear formal dress at big occasions like that.  For our summer concert the men  dispense with DJs and appear in shirt-sleeves, sometimes with a red bow tie. The women dress less formally too.
