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 Christmas concert on 17 December. Christmas Cheer is always a popular occasion, with singalong carols, mince pies, mulled wine and/or soft drinks, and so it proved, with a near capacity audience at St Matthews. We are now hard at work rehearsing for our first concert of 2019, on 30 March. Our main piece is Mozart's glorious Coronation Mass, composed in 1779, when he was 23, already showing him at his most inspired and inventive. This is supported by Haydn's delicious Te Deum. There are two further works, including Vivaldi's Concerto for two trumperts, which will feature our vice-president, the renowned Crispian Steele-Perkins. It promises to be a brilliant evening!
