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.

Wonderful news!  We have returned to live rehearsals!  Our first since lockdown was at our traditional venue of St Matthew's in East Croydon, on Tuesday September 7 (see photo).  We were delighted to be coming together again at last.  We still observed Covid precautions,  but there seemed to be a special zing to our singing, and David Gibson, our director, said he was thrilled with our performance.  For the moment we have put aside Bach's Mass in B Minor and instead are rehearsing a selection of wonderfully appealing pieces under the heading Choral Heritage. We will be singing these in  Basingstoke on Sunday November 14 - and, beyond that, we have exciting Christmas plans for a concert in Croydon, to be confirmed soon.  You will find our concerts listed on our Concert Page.

It was brilliant meeting up again and we seemed to sing with extra inspiration, boosted by the wonderful accoustics. We are now getting ready for our first concert, entitled Choral Heritage, to be staged at the Basingstoke Anvil, with our friends from the Basingstoke Choral Society, on Sunday November 14.  We have exicting plans for a Christmas performance in Croydon which will be confirmed soon.  We are so thrilled to be back - watch this space for further news!  Please see our Concerts page for our plans for 2021 and 2022.
