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 have wonderful news: we are resuming real-life rehearsals soon. On 18 May we are returning to St Matthew's Church for a rehearsal involving around 30 members and observing all the remaining Covid regulations. Looking further ahead, we are planning a revived programme of concerts, starting in November and with an exciting Christmas offering, Please see our Concerts page for our plans for 2021 and 2022. We have been rehearsing the magnificent Bach Mass in B Minor, together with the several new pieces: the Misa Criolla, a hauntingly beautiiful mass that uses Latin American and Creole rhythms; and a wonderful setting of poems by the Spanish genius Federico Lorca.
