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.

Carmina Burana 


Fairfield Halls  Croydon 







We are delighted to be returning to the Fairfield Halls for what promises to be a brilliant concert, led by a performance of Carl Orff's thrilling Carmina Burana. We will be part of a 250-voice choir, along with the Basingstoke Choral Society and the choir of St Mary's C of E school, Oxted, and backed by the wonderful Docklands Sinfonia.  We are also singing the delightful jazz-age The Rio Grande by Constant Lambert and Docklands Sinfonia will play George Gerswin's lilting Rhapsody in Blue.  Tickets are now on sale at the Fairfield Halls box office - use this link!
